Question posted in the General Law category relating to Gauteng
Hi, I would like to know how to deal with a colleague who keeps on "attacking" me in front of superiors. He would make comments like "lack of prior intervention", "severe lack of understanding" and accusing me of “making malicious, unsubstantiated statements, with the intention of defaming him”. Then threatening me with legal implications and an impact on working relations. Everything I say are puled out of proportion and turned into some sort of battle. We had a prior personal relationship that did not work out. He is now engaged to someone else, but we still need to work together. However, as we currently compete for the same promotion opportunity, he does everything possible to discredit me and put me in a bad light. How do I stop this. In my view, this is bullying. What are my rights? Please advise.
Answer to the Question
I see that you haven't made a payment for the question, but I'm going to assist you a little. If you want to ask a follow-up question, please make the required payment.
You need to speak to your immediate boss about the working relationship and ask that your boss give guidance, or you need to go to HR and basically do the same thing.
Please remember this is a dialog if you have follow-up questions please make the required payment, then use the REPLY button and ask your further question. I would like to continue assisting you, but I need to concentrate on people who make payments for their questions.
