  • victimisation claims

    Hi, long time lurker here. Love the forum!

    Does anyone know much about claims for victimisation?

    If a claim for victimisation is made for an incident that happened 1 month ago, that would be covered. But what about an incident that happened say 6 months ago? Has that incident now been void?
    After putting in a claim for victimisation, if further acts occur, do I have to put in a new claim for each act, or will the one claim suffice?

    Can anyone point me in the direction of the wording in law that confirms this?

    I presume that you are considering raising a grievance to your employer regarding victimisation?

    If so then I would suggest that leaving it 6 months after the incident would be leaving it a bit late. However if the first insistent was 6 months ago and you chose not do anything about it because you were hoping it was a "one off incident" but which as subsequently turned into more persistent victimisation then you need to make this clear in any grievance you raise. You should also indicate date, time, place of such incidents of victimisation and whether there were any witnesses to the incidents.

    What will happen should be that your company starts an investigation into the incidents including having a meeting with the person you have claimed has victimised you, this of itself should hopefully deter any further incidents but if not then you need to make your employer aware of each an every one giving the details I have already detailed.
    I do my best to provide good practical advice, however I do so without liability.
    If you have any doubts then do please seek professional legal advice.

      Thanks for the above!

      But what if this happens? I make a claim of victimisation (act 1). I go into work the following week, my colleagues ignore me (act 2) the following month my boss tells me he is unable to authorise my overtime despite doing it for others (act 3) and a year later a manager says to staff present with me being present that "we shouldn't say to much in front of him because he is taking the company to an ET." (act 4)

      Assume that act 1 has been correctly lodged with the ET and now waiting for a court date. If acts 2, 3 and 4 occured before the commencement of the ET for act 1 and assuming acts 2, 3, and 4 occured because of act 1- would I need to put in further separate claims for act 2, 3 and 4?

        You may be able to put in an amendment to your current claim to add in the further acts of victimisation, although it would be up to the tribunal to decide whether to allow or refuse an application to amend. Have you exhausted the grievance procedure about these instances?
