A traumatic meeting of an hour and a half. The Minutes I receive do not reflect this meeting but are a bland half-page travesty, reiterating incorrect information about so-called 'settlement' - backing out of responsibility. They claim they will add preventative measures to systems, a mild response to AWP's wrong doing, but I found the tone an insult. My trauma and the Commissionerss' reactions receives no comment.
There is no acknowledgement of Metherall's flawed 'investigation' which would have vindicated me, nor is there admittance of Jerrom's sending Bevan Brittan's Barrister into Court with false information. Due to Jerrom's denial of disability I never received disability discrimination compensation, which would have saved my home and given me financial security. Worse, Dr Howells trumped-up performance management is never acknowledged, despite Jerrom's tacitly admitting it to AwP Solicitor, Mr Amarshi. Stapleton and Barnes likewise were never admonished for their part. And, worse, Chris Stancliffe enthusiastically dived into a Dignity investigation, not bothering to check if the underlying Performance Management was based on truth. And HR Manager Andrew Mitchell played his part, in being 'too busy' and refusing to act. Shameful eh?
You begin to understand how cover-up systems work in toxic environments. To get to the heart of the matter is easy - return to the source. Do what the police do - discover motives. Why would someone sabotage their career by acting badly? Surely a whistleblower is likely to be got rid of? Why would someone with good testimonials turn toxic? Surely mental trauma might be indicated? Is it not commonplace for stressed Managers to resort to bullying? Why spend thousands of hours fighting for justice if it is not true?
A lot of this is down to seniors too lazy to read reports, too cowardly to face truths, too accepting of the 'halo' effect and not accepting how even decent Managers turn spiteful when they cannot cope. It is too easy to follow the herd. That is how injustices are promulgated, in every quarter.
