Today it really gets to me. I am so furious that I was bullied by my manager at work for suffering domestic abuse. There should not be a stigma on women who suffer domestic abuse and get out of it. I find it so terribly wrong and so against my human rights that I was nearly sacked when I went through the worst horror of my life.
I think what my manager has done is unforgiveable.
Some of my colleagues avoided me too.
I am being treated like an outcast because I told them the truth.
But what could I do. I had excessive court hearings and they not long finished. I needed to request time off to attend these hearings. Some colleagues were empathic, but all in all they consider me to being a less reliable person although I do more work than anybody else.
My manager overloads me with work deliberately and critisizes me all the time. I watch what the others do and how they are treated. I never take sick leave whilst others are on sick leave all the time without any consequences. For me it is clear that I am subjected to bullying.
I cannot wait to get out of there again.
There should be laws that force employers to support women who flee domestic abuse, not to destroy them!!!
Thank you Confused123, I do not understand why it is a crime to flee domestic abuse. I was treated as if I had committed something. This is full blown abusive patriarchy. It seems they rather prefer us to get killed than getting out and taking the abusers to court.
