Landrover / Jaguar:
Constructive dismissal. Thank you, Judge Hughes.
All people who suffer from workplace bullying, certainly if it concerns the extreme kind of workplace bullying that George Cheese and Harry Hayward suffered from, should document what is happening, then leave and sue their employers.
Mr Hayward was set on fire at his place of work. Although it was an accident, it was an accident waiting to happen.
Mr Cheese was locked into a trunk (boot), punched, verbally abused and deliberately set on fire. The abuse of Mr Cheese continued after his death. His colleagues / manager(s) continued to scapegoat him when they said that what had been done to Mr Cheese was not bullying but horseplay and the coroner who ruled in George Cheese’s case was a coward.
I wrote about both cases in my latest book.
Horseplay is like sex. It requires consenting partners.
Without consent, it is rape or bullying. Period.
Setting someone on fire is not horseplay. It’s sadism. Cruelty.
