Any kind advice here would be very helpful. I'm approaching the end of my SSC and have applied for an extension, with the appropriate bosses' support. Nearly two years' ago, after several months' bullying from a senior (major - I'm a captain), and having warned my Dept what was happening earlier, I had a breakdown and was off work for several months. I think I have the appropriate medical documentation to testify to this - and the bully has a certain reputation, bullying a colleague when I went off sick (I was posted then from the Y-List). Since then, I've been on medication and had a relapse - but I've been back at work and well for a year. But because I'm downgraded, my Department is intimating that they won't extend me, seemingly 'cos of my medical status (but maybe my fac just doesn't fit...?) Whilst I understand that it's appropriate to be 'fit' at extension time, this situation feels very unfair and may be regarded as constructive dismissal: my Dept is undoubtedly culpable for my condition; they did nothing apparent when I complained, and left the man to continue his bullying when I went sick and was then posted. This then caused further - documented - trouble for another. It feels quite wrong effectively to 'sack' me for a condition that was created by my employer - the Army. I never sought formal redress for my situation: I wasn't well enough and just wanted to 'move on.' But, having tried to do the decent thing in not kicking a stink up, I find that my inaction (I used the informal means at my disposal to make this man's behaviour known...) may backfire. I have now intimated to my Dept that I consider the situation at least morally tantamount to constructive dismissal: no reply yet. If I have any positive course of action that might persuade my Dept to approve my extension application (rather than, say, facing some sort of enquiry), I'd be glad to know. Many thanks indeed!
