March 5 - Monday, Monday.
I was somewhat surprised to receive a complaint from the auditors about the treatment of their staff member today. They have said he was bullied in the course of his duties and the auditor wants us to justify our treatment of him.
Heavens above! The guy drove us to distraction; a manager had to come and dig him out of a hole of his own making and now we're being accused of bullying him in the course of his employment.
I felt like sending the very rude response to them, with a notice of intent to appoint new auditors by return, but long experience has taught me just how unwise this can be. So I invited AM in for a coffee and we agreed my PA should take statements from the three main people involved.
But candidly, I am not amused. Keep your staff disputes in house, I say. Especially when we have every reason in my opinion to think ourselves the aggrieved party.
