I won my grievance!! My fool of a boss has been fired!!!

My stomach was tied in knots as I read my statement to a panel of "big wigs" . They were horrified at my boss' actions of trying to "diagnose me" & "cure me" . My boss is now unemployed....how do I feel?.....Well, I feel FANTASTIC!!!

I have learned a valuable lesson & I want to share it with you wonderful people.

I went back to work for the same company, but in another position, in May 2017. I ignored the "stupidity" of my boss' suggestions because I was only working part time & I hardly worked with him.... I got paid whether I worked or not. So at the time I thought "who cares? what an idiot?". To be honest, his actions didn't bother me.

As time went on, he took my "silence" as a signal to be more aggressive. This aggressiveness made me mad. Making me mad forced me to get the union involved, and thus he is now fired.

I guess what I am trying to say is, when your boss acts like an idiot PLEASE take action right away. Don't do what I did and let it linger.... Your boss' "stupidity" only grows stronger & you only get madder. Getting angry just isn't worth it.

Well done sue for standing up for yourself: it is so stressful feeling you have to justfy yourself to others on top of awful disease. We have equalities act in uk which bars discrimination against disabled amongst other groups: however in practice prejudice remains and can be really insidious at times. I cannot bear bullying of any kind. I'm sure your post has inspired others x

The Canadian Human Rights Act bars discrimination over here. I am amazed at how many people don't know it or follow the guidelines.

It is said that hind sight is 20/20. So looking back, I think I am just as guilty. I knew my boss was going against our Human Rights Act, but I did nothing as I knew I was protected. My job was safe. I wasn't worried & I didn't want the annoyance of a union grievance....but by me prolonging getting the union involved only caused me horrible stress. What would have been a 1 page statement to read to the panel for my grievance turned into a 28 page statement.

I think I leaned my lesson.

Well Sue, he had it coming, hoist by his own petard. Again, well done for continuing & seeing it through, it's the only way such bullies will learn, or we hope they will. Does this appear anywhere for possible future employers to see do you know, that he had a disability discrimination case brought against him which he lost?

That's a good question Jan. I surely hope so. I think I'll call my steward and ask.

Great news - he absolutely had it coming and I hope he never works in a management capacity again so that he never again has the opportunity to treat anybody the way he treated you! 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
