Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about grievance of bullying:
My son has been bullied in the work place by his immediate line manager over a period of 6 months. She has criticized him for petty things during his training period as a member of a Management Options Scheme. She has also disciplined him in a locked room empowered by another manager without giving him even a verbal warning that was going to happen. This has happened twice now and he has been made to feel totally unsupported by other staff members who he thought were his friends at a higher level that have known this line manager for longer and have sided with her. I don’t know if his line manager to get her own way fed them information that was incorrect, but they should have known better than to carry out these disciplines. He is now nearly 21 and has been working at the store since he was 16.5 years.
