I am thrilled to have received lovely comments from a recent client of mine. I helped her with an internal disciplinary at work and also issues relating to discrimination. Read on to learn more.
My Client’s Story
When I met with my client she explained she had been invited to attend a disciplinary hearing. The allegations were unclear and she went on to explain that she had been experiencing difficulties with her Line Manager for a considerable amount of time. My client explained she suffered from a disability which caused her to take regular rest breaks, however, every time she did her Line Manager would make unpleasant comments. I identified her Line Manager’s behaviour as discriminatory. My client explained to me that she loved her job and so her key objective was to secure her employment and raise the issues with her Line Manager.
I was instructed to submit a Disciplinary Statement and a Formal Grievance on my client’s behalf. The response from her employer was to halt the disciplinary procedure and investigate her Formal Grievance. Ultimately, my client’s disciplinary proceeded no further, mediation was offered between herself and her Line Manager together with my client having a new Line Manager appointed for her to report to. She was very happy with the outcome.
My Client’s Comments
What were the circumstances that caused you to look for a legal adviser?
I had been subject to disciplinary action which I felt was discriminatory at work.
How did Lucy Stones help you?
I met with her for an initial appointment and she gave me time to fully explain what had happened. I felt she really listened to me. She then asked me what my objectives were and set out about giving me the options available to me. Once I confirmed how I would like to proceed, she took it all in charge.
Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?
Yes, she resolved my issue at work.
What could they have done better?
She was incredibly helpful and put me right at ease. She’s very knowledgeable on any questions I had and I had full faith in her abilities.
