I was working in a senior position in a charity. The departure of my supportive boss whilst I was on maternity leave left me exposed. After trying to force me to take additional leave, I returned to accusations which I proved were false. Harassment and undermining my authority with peers and line reports continued. Eventually I submitted a formal complaint and agreed to go quietly since I was so worn down by the experience and humiliation. This experience has significantly damaged my career and my confidence and this organisation continues to offend with complete impunity.
