Re: Employee of the Month.

If people come in sick for fear of losing annual bonus, then spread flu or D&V or make serious errors/have an accident at work . . .

Re: Becoming a Mum

Hi again I suspect a lot of non dyspraxic prospective parents have the same worries and you don't say whether you or mot you have a partner or not and how much help and support you will receive from family and friends? Regrettably here are plenty of parents who probably don't care enough about such ...

Re: Help and Advice needed.

Hi there It's what the Forum is here for so of course you can ask. I think you need to consult an employment law expert at the earliest opportunity. If he's a union member or can join, I feel that would be a good idea. as he would benefit if he could have someone with him at any formal meeting(s) be...

Re: Gave up on life

I was working for a landscape company but they have went bust My first employer sadly went under too. It wasn't easy at the time but having had some previous work helped me in finding another more stable employer. It is so demotivating especially when you seem to fail to get anywhere in all that yo...

Re: Employee of the Month.

So have you been to Dr about your toe. Is it sufficiently bad that he/she might sign you off for a week or are you effectively on a contract where they only pay if you turn up for work? Have you thought about other employers and types of work available in your area that you could do instead or is th...

Re: Employee of the Month.

I find I can be fearful and a bit too averse to change for my own good.Also I think as intelligent people we do need roles. That are intellectually rewarding as otherwise we can become very disincentivised You’ve made some possibly astute observations about poor management at the factory where you w...

Re: Employee of the Month.

So have you spoken to your immediate or higher superiors to voice your discontent, concerns and general dissatisfaction? I can appreciate that you feel you are the lowest of the low, but how much is this coloured by your own view of yourself? They previously recognised you as employee as the month, ...

It's saddeningly familiar. I've got a job now for a little over a year, but my boss just snapped because I suggested an improvement to our system to the IT manager of the company and he thought it was a good idea to implement.. I've been put on notice that I have to follow the hierarchical lines so...

Re: Has anyone with dyspraxia passed first aid?

Of course the idea is to hopefully prevent loss of life.
