JW Occupational Therapist

I am so grateful for Phil’s support in dealing with an employment issue. I was employed for five years by a health board. I had felt bullied by the employer and Phil was very understanding. From my ase, Phil provided me with clear options which ensured that I remained realistic about what was possible. From this, I was able to instruct Phil in negotiating an exit plan from my employer by means of a personal grievance. We succeeded in this and Phil ensured that my rights were respected by the District Health Board. It was helpful to receive some money and the DHB had to also pay for the legal costs. This has allowed me to have a breathing space for a couple of months and I have made new career plans. Most importantly, Phil’s hard work has helped greatly with my self-esteem and my professional integrity has remained intact.
