Sign off sick

I want to be signed off sick with stress and depression from work because I feel I have been bullied in the work place.... I do not wish to go ahead with any grievance because anything brought up will be asked did I tell anyone and the answer is no... Simply because I have 3 supervisors, the one that I feel was bullying me is the girlfriend of the highest up supervisor...

I am handing my notice in as soon as I can ... I am going to request from the doctor a sick note so I do not have to work my notice as I feel I simply cannot take it there anymore... I was sent home the other day due to the head supervisor feeling I was unfit for work... Only after her girlfriend had a go at me asking if I have a disability that makes me unable to tell the difference between something that is wet and dry because i didn't agree that a blanket was wet...

On another note I have an event on Sunday that I am required to attend but if I hand my notice and sick note in Monday they can be like well you were fine yesterday...

How awful for you. If you're leaving then they can say what they like about your attendance on Sunday. You may not be feeling strong enough, but I would strongly recommend talking to ACAS. Do you have any evidence of the bullying? Have you thought about jumping up to another level of management to report?

I really feel for you. We had a bully at our workplace and so many staff (great ones too) left because of her. We were working over 2 sites and the manager was always at the other site so was never aware of what she was doing. She had this great ability to cover up her actions! I had worked somewhere else for many years, before this, and had NEVER witnessed what I saw at this place. She retired last year thank goodness!

Are you in a union as you may need to bring them in. Don't let the bully win. Just because she is the girlfriend of a higher up supervisor (a position she will be using to her delight, no doubt) she shouldn't behave like that.

I just wouldn't go back at all. Get a sick note to cover you. Sounds horrendous! Hope you get sorted with another job soon x
