Bullying in East Riding of Yorkshire Council

Yabootoyou made this Freedom of Information request to East Riding of Yorkshire Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

The request was refused by East Riding of Yorkshire Council.

Dear East Riding of Yorkshire Council,

This request is being made to make the public at large and people in each authority aware of which councils are the worst offenders or the better examples when it comes to bullying in the workplace. All councils have very similar anti-bullying / dignity at work policies, but there seems to be a difference in the level of bullying. This is intended to statistically show those differences.

1) How many employees of your authority have
made an
official complaint of harassment and bullying at work since the 1st April 2009?

2) How many of these complaints were upheld in favour of the
complainant?

3) How many of those which were not upheld in favour of the
complainant went on to Appeal?

4) How many of those that went to Appeal were found to favour the
complainant?

5) How many complaints went on to an Employment Tribunal?

6) How many of these were found to uphold the complaint?

7) Out of how many of those allegations (the number given to question 1) did the complainant of
bullying claim that the bullies were telling lies?

8) How many staff does your authority have and what is the current population within your authority's area?

Yours faithfully

Mr Lewis

Dear East Riding of Yorkshire Council,

I would like to add the following question to my request.

Q9) Out of the number in the response to question 1, how many of
the complainants said that they had been called "a loner"?

Yours sincerely,

Mr Lewis

Dear Mr Lewis,

Thank you for your email requesting access to further information
following our response in December.  This information is not recorded
formally therefore to establish whether this information is held within
each file would require officers going back through all transcripts of
investigatory meetings and looking for the word 'loner'.  We estimate that
this would take a minimum of 45 minutes per case (32 cases) which totals
24 hours and exceeds the cost limit of 18 hours as set out in the Act.
 The Council is able to use its discretion in deciding whether to allow
access to the information. In this instance the Council has decided not to
allow access.

Regards,

Freedom of Information
East Riding of Yorkshire Council
