On the 4th August 2011 my boss did somehing illegal... He invaded my
privacy by using YYY's administration system to look at my "Call
History". He was checking whom I was communicating with while using my
cellphone.The problem is this was my private cellphone.
He even interrogated a colleague (ZZZ) regarding a private
SMS I sent him that morning, which was very embarassing for him. He
decided to go to HR with his complaint... nothing was done about this
I decided not to actively persue this as I could see that nobody cares
and it would have made life difficult for me at work.
I eventually decided to resign as it became more and more difficult to
work with people who do not trust me even after 5 years at the
company. I also reported to the HR Manager during my exit interview
that my manager's actions was the major reason for my resignation. I
left XXX at the end of November 2011.
A few months later I found out that nothing had been done about the
manager's indiscretions. I requested, via email, that Tip-Off start an
investigation as they were in charge of sensitive investigations for
the company. They ignored me and did not even respond to my email
request. I eventually sent my complaint to YYY.
YYY launched an investigation into the matter and found enough
evidence to support my claim. They forced XXX to investigate
as well. I only managed to find out from YYY that the accused was
found guilty in a DC hearing. XXX still refuses to communicate
with me regarding my request for compensation.
I cannot afford Legal assistance as I've been unemployed since November.
I'm not sure if I can follow the route of 'Constructive Dismissal' or
apply for 'Condonation'.
I need help/advice.
