DISCIPLINARY OR FORMAL PROCESS
If you are facing a disciplinary or formal process at the moment, it can be a daunting, worrying, time. If you have recently been suspended or even dismissed and you believe your employer has not followed the correct procedure, you should seek advice.
You need to act quickly as, the general ‘rule of thumb’ requires employees to do something about it within a three month time-frame.
If you have recently, quite suddenly, lost your job – with no satisfactory written explanation, you may have been subjected to an unlawful process or even wrongful dismissal. Does any of this sound familiar?
If you have been made Redundant and you do not believe your employer has treated you fairly, seek advice immediately. You only have a small time-frame of 3 months to take action.
Have any of the above circumstances (disciplinary, suspension, dismissal, redundancy) occurred because, in your view, you raised concerns or submitted a formal complaint?
SETTLEMENT AGREEMENTS AND CASE ASSESSMENTS
Where there is divide and working relationships are strained, we can help. We would start by carrying out a Case Assessment. We focus on Employment Law, Case Law, in-house policies and business risk – and advise you with regard to the merit of your case. Following this we would offer to engage on a Without Prejudice basis with the parties, where both parties were willing to enter into talks ‘off the record’ with a view to settling any dispute amicably.
Call us on 07734 701221 if you would like to know more about how we can help you.
We are Regulated by the Claims Management Regulatory authority. CMR 40033.
Whether you are the Employee or the Employer – we can help you reach an amicable resolution.
POST TRAUMATIC EMBITTERMENT DISORDER
Are you feeling distressed? Do you have PTED? Are you suffering with anxiety and is it workplace anxiety? Is your distress turning to stress? Are you suffering with work related stress? Is all this due to abuse at work? Has your doctor signed you off work? Do you believe your employer is treating you unfairly? Is someone at work bullying or harassing you? Are you being subjected to an unfair disciplinary or dismissal process? Have you been suspended? Is the cost of it all impacting on your home life and your general welfare?
There is a new disorder being diagnosed in relation to workplace harassment and bullying: Post Traumatic Embitterment Disorder. With PTED the victim can no longer trust anyone around him/her and the trauma in essence consumes the victim with profound “bitterness” making the victim incapable of moving on from the incident. We believe quite a few people are entrapped in their trauma and have been for years. Does this sound familiar?
WHAT IS PTED
PTED is a proposed disorder modeled after Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Some psychiatrists are proposing this as a mental disorder because they believe there are people who have become so bitter they can barely function. PTED patients might not fit the formal criteria for PTSD and can be clinically distinguished from it, prompting the description of a new and separate disorder. A German psychiatrist, Michael Linden, has done some groundbreaking research into this condition and describes its effect on people: “They feel the world has treated them unfairly. It’s one step more complex than anger. They’re angry plus helpless.” He says that people with the disorder are almost treatment resistant and that; These people usually don’t come to treatment, or do not respond well to treatment and/or mediation because they believe the world has to change, not them. This may be one reason (of many perhaps) why mediation is not always successful in conflict cases.
He believes that 1% to 2% of people are affected at any given time, and explains that, although sufferers of the disorder tend to have a desire for vengeance, “…Revenge is not a treatment. At HR & Diversity Management we believe the statistics are far higher.
This behavior is so common — and so deeply destructive – that some psychiatrists are urging it be more widely identified and acknowledged as a mental illness under the name post-traumatic embitterment disorder. Embittered people are typically good people who have worked hard at something important, such as a job, relationship or activity. When something unexpectedly awful happens — they don’t get the promotion, their spouse files for divorce or they fail to make the Olympic team — a profound sense of injustice overtakes them. Instead of dealing with the loss with the help of family and friends, they cannot let go of the feeling of being victimized. Almost immediately after the traumatic event, they become angry, pessimistic, aggressive, hopeless haters. This very severe emotional reaction can become ‘all consuming’ and negative. The degree of reaction varies.
If any of these sound familiar, please read on.

DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT
Have you been made Redundant or dismissed unfairly? Worried about your income? UK Statistics produced this year by the ILO (International Labour Organisation) show that 49,000 people lost their jobs in the three months to November 2010. The total number of people out of work came in at 2.498m. Whilst this was down from the previous month, it was higher than the period June to August 2010.
If you are facing redundancy or dismissal or you are worried about money (such as outgoing costs and living costs), or you have been treated unlawfully, you should seek advice.
If you have been recently released (made redundant, dismissed, “let go”), and your employer did not consult with you, inform you of your right to be accompanied at the dismissal meeting, inform you of your statutory rights and put the business case in writing – or fail to inform you of your right to appeal – then you may have been dismissed unlawfully.
