A MAN has found that his office’s human resources team is perplexingly taking his employer’s side in a dispute rather than his.
Joseph Turner, who has accused his boss of bullying, expected HR to be understanding, sympathetic, and to take up arms on his behalf to fight for what is right but was shocked to find they gave not a f**k about him either as a resource or a human.
He said: “They’re for the people, right? To nod at you empathically with their heads tilted while wearing fluffly cardigans, right?
“So when I told the lady Martin had chucked a stapler at my head I expected him to be suspended immediately. Instead she looked at her computer, said Martin had eight years seniority, and had I thought of getting another job?
“When I mentioned the furious rages, the open drug-taking and punching Sam in the face in the Monday meeting, she told me a senior manager had confirmed all that was merely hearsay and when I asked that manager’s name she said ‘Martin’.
“Apparently any formal complaint will be lodged against my permanent record, I’ve got no evidence, we could be downsizing soon and she knew what I’d written in the last anonymous employee survey so maybe think again.
“I left having agreed to think carefully about how I was going to improve my own conduct, having promised to write a glowing company review on Glassdoor.”
