I am working in a manufacturing unit for the last 2 years as a Manager, Now the newly joined Head of the unit has giving mental torcher and forced me to resign for the last six months, and he gave me two show cause notices and suspended two times through HR department. When in meetings he teases me in front of all others about my physical appearance and my dressings. If he is not satisfied with my performance he should degrade or replace to some other activity. But he is threatening me with the termination of my job. The same thing happening for my other collogues also.

Nowadays we can't tolerate him and I want to make the complaint on him, please suggest anyone regards this.

Dear member,

You have mentioned the harassment from your superior. However, have you made an attempt to find out why is he upset with you? I suggest you try to remember whether or not were there any flaws in your work. If the quality of the work is fine, then no superior will even think of harassing his/her junior.

If you have joined two years ago, then have you not established some credibility? I suspect that the head of the unit who joined six months ago has been given feedback about you. His torture of you could be deliberate.

If the Unit Head has suspended, or issued you a show-cause notice, both twice, then these were adequate signals to show that your services are not required. Nevertheless, you held on to your job steadfastly. Therefore, there is no point in sticking to the job any longer. Start searching for a new job and quit honourably.

You should call up for the formal meeting which will consist of you, the higher authorities to discuss this matter in detail to come upto a conclusion.
If that do not seems to be the work culture of your organization then you should straight away write a complaint letter to your higher authority stating your plight and after waiting for a fortnight (if they do not do anything on your complaint) you should send a legal notice to the accused for mental harassment and torture and defamation. If they try to oust you from the job then you should further bring up a case based on the notice and a case against illegal removal from the job seeking heavy compensation in against the same.

Dear Broadmind CiteHR Member,

What I understand from your post that the new Head of Unit had given you two SCNs and suspended you, but you are on duty that implies that your reply to the SCNs was found satisfactory by the Management of the Company. Coming back to the problem of harassment and mental torture faced by you, it appears that something is missing between you and the Head of Unit which should be first resolved by requesting a personal meeting with him or you can also raise the issue in a meeting when any unwarranted remarks is passed on you by the Head of Unit. First try to resolve at your level in one to one meeting with your Head of Unit and try to understand what he wants from you on the work assigned to you. If you are unable to resolve the differences, then write a letter to HR Head for arranging a meeting in his presence to resolve the issue. If this also fails, then you may write to concerned Director or VP who is Head of manufacturing unit. In the meantime also try to search for new job as suggested by our senior colleague Shri Dinesh Divekar.

2, Remember that legal battle is very protracted, complex and expensive, and it is not advisable to resort to legal battle because in case you switch over to a new company you will need F&F settlement and experience certificate etc, So try to solve your issues amicably as far as possible, and if you do not get resolution, leave the company on a good note and secure a better future.

With best wishes to you,
