So I am really struggling to maintain my work level. Ive not had a day off despite being so ill. My current line manager has been very supportive but he leaves on Friday. Our new manager is one of our team. He is a bully and tries to micro manage. He is also the henchman of our AD who dislikes me as apparently I don't flutter my eyelids enough at him. Today he ripped up in front of me the special arrangements that were made so I could work from home on some days (We are actually meant to do this anyway) and not arranging meetings before 10:00am. I am currently covering three people's posts due to maternity. I've been told I will now cover all of this permanently with more work on top and as the post was originally full time but I work 4 days a week. No concession will be made and I will be expected to cover 40 hours worth of work not 30. If I dont think I'm up to it I can always resign apparently. Not bad for local authority children's services is it! I have sent them the NRAS booklet on information for employers. I'm waiting to see if they rip that up in front of my face too!
