I have been getting pulled into meetings with HR and other head office staff I’ve had three meetings so far and never get an email to say im having a meeting just been bullied into them and felt forced to sign off on the meetings. So tomorrow I have another meeting which I’ve not been informed about at all. They have been trying to sack me since October this year over nothing just bullies I have no idea what to do I work in aged care as administrator

Hi Rod

I had my meeting yesterday and what a joke.
I’m sitting in this disciplinary meeting that I had no idea about I though it was just a general meeting about my work etc.

The HR lady asked me to go through my allegations and I’m now confused and wondering what’s going on. So they realise that not aware of what’s going on and they ask me if I received a letter about today’s meeting and I reply no and then they are confused.

So basically a email letter was sent to my manger who has only been with the aged care home for 3 weeks and number 7 manger in a two year old home. So my manager didn’t open her email and give me this disciplinary letter. So I had no idea so the meeting had to stop until I received this letter and re schedule a new meeting date.

once I received this letter it was a draft letter that has no dates sentences are missing says see attached photos no photos are provided in this draft letter that has just been printed out and not corrected and not all information is provide no photos as the letter states.

so basically the head office lady dislikes me and wants me out they have been trying to sack me since September and every week are constantly at me over nothing they all have there backs they all stick up for each other.

they will keep finding things to bully me out of my job it’s been very stressful I have lost so much weight I have had an eye ulcer since the start of November and still have this ulcer in my eye from the stress.

plus I have to do all the relative visits every hour which is totally out of control I find it very hard to let family in every hour and they have 9 bookings per hour plus I have to do there temperatures ask them covid questions get them to wash there hands then take them to the residents room I’m constantly interrupted and do my own administration work and no communication if I’m happy to do the visits basically I was given no choice putting myself at risk of interacting with the public.

they keep sacking other staff or pushing them to leave. If I had done something wrong I would be ok with it but I’ve done nothing wrong other staff have done far worse incidents and gets covered up. We have worksafe visiting every week plus two cleaners for 6 hours for 145 bed home. It’s a joke. I’m bullied out of my job for nothing.

Start looking for another job before your health goes down hill further. It is not worth it. Dont find excuses why you can't. Just get another job.

I experienced bullying for 5 yrs and the psychological damage has been significant. I have anxiety, memory loss, issues with critical thinking and have been suicidal. My family and my relationship with them also suffered.

It can be hard to appreciate the damage bullying can do until you are damaged. I certainly under estimated it.

It sounds like the workplace is very disfunctional.

Hi
It’s hard when you are on your own with a child and live in a small community to find work plus with covid 19 everyone is applying for the same jobs.

I have had a terrible year work related and on a personal level if another human thinks it’s ok to ruin a family then I hope they live in pure hell.

and to be retreated so poorly at work for nothing I’ve done makes me wonder what pure evil people can bring upon others for no reason truly makes me sad 😞

I agree 100% re the evil people at work. I could write a book that would read like a fiction book. Work places can be very toxic.

Take care of yourself especially for your child's sake. My children nearly lost me to suicide due to a toxic work place. The legal avenues for bullying are very few. Be careful the workplace doesn't ruin your professional reputation with manufactured allegations.

I'm getting a really creepy sense of hey, this sounds uncomfortably familiar, and I am feeling a slight but distinct and rapidly escalating need to panic and flee from this forum and the Rule of Law generally.

I have found the Rule of Law somewhat disappointing. I had previously harboured moderate hopes that it actually meant something.

I would like to openly talk about a real event, or more correctly, an cascade of events that became a downward spiral into an abyss of bewildering lawlessness, but I'm newish here, and already known to one member (in a good way I hope). So I won't open up a specific discussion, but I really wish I could.

Never mind. It would be complicated to explain, and probably not appropriate here. You can delete my previous post and this one.
