Welcome. My name is Mark Williams and I have developed this site to help employees with problems at work. When I received a written warning at work I was shocked and dismayed. I had been with my employer for nine years and had been promoted only ten months earlier. I searched the internet for help, but all I found were dozens of sites from lawyers, management consultants and Human Resources professionals offering advice to bosses on how best to dismiss their staff.
I have produced this website to help redress the balance for employees. I have no political axes to grind but I do believe in a sense of fair play and in helping people who have been badly treated, bullied or discriminated against at work. I have produced a detailed information pack to help employees through the processes of written warnings, appeals, dismissal, filing for a tribunal, tribunals and negotiating the best possible out of court settlements. When you have the information contained in my pack you will realise that your situation, although serious, is controllable, negotiable and probably winnable.
The pack draws on my experience from my 15 month battle with my ex employer both of what I did right and of what I did wrongly. It comments on the union and legal advice which I received as well as drawing on the considerable research I have done. In addition it contains links to many useful resources and is packed full of ideas for winning tactics and techniques that you could adopt. Please see the section headings for a more detailed view of what the pack contains. I hope that you buy the pack and in so doing realize the full extent of your employment rights and how to exercise them.
Whilst written from a UK perspective, well over 95% of the pack is equally applicable to other English speaking or advanced countries. The principles, practices, tactics and techniques that you need to understand in order to defend yourself are exactly the same.
Although the pack is very useful to employees in its own right, it is not intended to replace legal or union advice but rather to complement it, to spark winning ideas, to safeguard you from common pitfalls and to keep your morale high. It is also designed to empower you to take control of your situation.
