this totally depends on the work envorinment. do you work for a corporation or private business? possibly be able to utilize the "whistleblowers act" without fear of retribution? all depends on situation. is the bullying caused due to family members working together? all workpaces supposedly offer protection from bullying, but more often than not, the person you confide in to tell your personal issue is related to or friends with the individual you have a conflict with. so just be careful and think before you speak. if you cant address your immediate supervisor, go to the highest level of authority that you can to clear yourself from retribution.

Corporate or private it does not matter you are still able to go and file any charges to the Human Relations person.

absolutely....unless they are the spouse or relative of someone you have a gripe with. in that case you usually end up worse than when you started. i have worked several places and every one had a gopher for an HR person. all they do is hand it over to someone else. then you lose that big "confidentiality" thing. before you know it, your co worker knows more about the situation than you do.

This is a private sector job and is nation wide. However, this particular establishment runs on favortism. Other words, who can kiss who's butt better? There is false accusations; which led to bullying from the employer, and employees. They are working together to get this one person gone. This person can't sleep or eat because the person is afraid even to go into work. This person needs help before the person has mental breakdown. Any suggestions.

sounds like whomever has been dealt the common deal that an outsider gets. you have two choices: stand up and defend you position( which will probably only seal your fate), or look for work elsewhere. this happens everywhere. they just rocked the boat somehow. there are always possibilities for those who are willing to work, even in a tough economy. you simply cant allow people to hold power over you, especially when its something to do in the workplace. some people thrive on others misery, and will hang on to it as long as you let them. confidence will tote you the whole mile. fear will leave your stomach in knots and your eyes tired. to beat the oppression, you must be above it. let the ones that hate live in it.

buy a small pocket recorder and keep it on everyday during the workday. You can get a digital recorder for about $60.00 at Radio Shack that will pick up very well. It will record up to 7 hrs at a time. You will be surprised what people will say and have captured on the recorder. Download it every few days to your computer and burn the recording on DVD to preserve. Cover your own butt and dont expect anyone else to do it. Sometimes you ahve to demand fair treatment. You will know when the time is right to stand up and how your proof

you are on a track that leads to gray areas. i imagine this individual appreciates both our inputs, but recording without consent can carry an awful lot of ramifications. it wouldnt be amissable in court, or i wouldnt think so anyways. either way, i think the main jest of this we see eye to eye on. stand up for yourself.

you can only be sued if the conversation would normally be considered a private conversation. If the surroundings are open to anyone walking by or joining in the conversation, there is no presumption of privacy. You would be surprised how lenient the law is for recording. I dont know of anyone who is being sued for recording someone in SH. The lawsuits there are for slander for written material.

Just ask the guy who recorded the conversation to blackmail someone...he knows who he is and he will be brought to justice. It has taken some time to do it,and is still going through the court system....but justice will prevail and everyone will finally know where all of this started, and all of the SH people involved will be brought to justice. I should not be exposing this info, but most of the investigation has been completed and will be public soon. Extortion is a criminal offense.

Watch where you do business and who you trust with your personal records.......I know someone who was fired for that reason, according to her employer, each and every person who was his patient, she felt the need to talk about them in a very unprofessional way of pure gossip and a vulgar matter until he had no option but to let her go. Wasn't she let go from another job also for digging into personl records that was not in her line of job description?
