Q: I complained about my boss to his line manager because I felt he was bullying me. I was told to put my complaint in writing, which I did along with witness statements from colleagues who saw what had been happening. The boss said he would move me to a different department so it wouldn’t happen again but I said I didn’t want to do a different job, I just wanted no more bullying. When the line manager refused to take steps to reprimand my boss I threatened to take them to a tribunal. Now he’s trying to make me sign a settlement agreement and buy me off instead. What should I do?Read more

Q&A - Could we claim against hospital for cerebral palsy caused by oxygen starvation at daughters birth?
Q: For 2 years I underwent gruelling IVF treatment and finally got pregnant in 2016. My pregnancy was great but I had a very traumatic birth. I was in labour for 23 hours and eventually had a forceps delivery. I gave birth to a daughter, Eve, and I could not have been happier. After we took her home, Eve was struggling with feeding and her little body was making involuntary movements. After testing we have now been told that Eve has Cerebral Palsy, caused by a lack of oxygen to her brain during birth. Eve’s Physician has been fantastic, but I am concerned about what the future holds for Eve. Should I make a claim against the hospital?Read more

Q: My ex-husband and I split up amicably and got a ‘quickie’ divorce on grounds of two years separation with consent. By mutual agreement our daughter lives with me and her father has always paid me maintenance for her every month, a sum agreed between us.

Q. I have been a Special Guardian for my niece, who is 10, since 2012. This was a process that went through the Courts and at the time I had a Solicitor to represent me. The problem is that I don’t actually recall much of the information given to me back then. Now I feel I need some guidance as to what a Special Guardianship Order allows me to do, but I am struggling to find time to see a Solicitor. Can I go to someone else for some help?Read more
