Areas of Law / Employment

My manager at work is being completely unreasonable towards me. I don’t think he is actually doing anything illegal but it’s making life very difficult. What can I do apart from leave?

All employers have a duty of “trust and confidence” to their employees. This means that they must behave reasonably. They cannot victimise individuals. Your first step should be to bring the problem to the attention of somebody in a senior position. You could do this by using the company grievance procedure. If that doesn’t sort things out, or the manager is the owner of the business so there’s no-one else to turn to, you might be able to resign and claim constructive dismissal; however these cases can be difficult to prove and you should take advice first. The alternative is to stay with the job while you look for another.
