Being rather neurotic, and because my normal name is allied to my email address, I have adopted a new user name for this site as I may want to get some (non OGFB) stuff off my chest. My location is of a very flat and norfolk broads location. My old name was eiluJ reversed. Hello friends. Today I was suspended from work and am feeling rather unhappy. IMHO this is scape goat finding and I need somewhere to get this off my chest.

Yesterday, late morning, I received an email with the specific reasons that I have been suspended; mostly is seems to be due to other people's housekeeping issues, I do have mitigating circumstances. No-one else has been suspended so I may consider myself the scapegoat. Have we discussed scapegoat in dialect and other...?

Brad's advice about the diary/timeline is good. They will not want to put anything in writing but will use phone and verbal interviews. Keep notes of these and after they have happened put your understanding of what was discussed in writing and post it to them requesting correction if you are inaccurate. They will not respond and your version is the evidence because they have not questioned it. This means that you can put your own slant on the matter in hand and it is written into the record. Sounds complicated but this is how you gat them into a corner because they are idle and don't understand this mode of attack. If someone with nouse does recognise what you are doing it will sound immediate alarm bells and they will try to mitigate the situation which is of course what you wanted in the first place.

Regard it as a game of chess, not a chore. I have years of dealing with official bodies like this and have had some excellent tutors including very senior Civil Servants. They understand the game well, they are playing it all the time. This is why when a politician comes up against the Civil Service he or she is on a hiding to nothing.

Scapegoat: Webster: Mainly Biblical origin, at Yom Kippur a goat was turned loose in the wilderness after having the sins of the people laid on its head by the High Priest. Leviticus. 16:6 10, 26.

Chess game underway. Opening gambit played calmly and factually with documented proofs of mitigation. No black player involved in game thus far but noted hovering on the sideline momentarily. I feel I ought to refer to chess positively and that white always starts. Now awaiting second move........

Wonderful! You must have done all the right things. Now all you have to do is watch your back! Bruised egos can be dangerous. Remember Patton, when asked the secret of his success as a general he said "I gets there firstest with the mostest!"

Thank you one, thank you all. Now I gotta get my name back (both at work and here). Bruised ego leaves in 2 weeks. How can a company let a contractor have so much power? We go through hoops etc to land a job yet companies take on interims with not so much as a by your leave. I can understand if there is a specific project that is required, where the company can monitor and manage the project but this was just ridiculous. Guess what I shall be doing having cleared my name!

Wendy, I believe that much of the current use of 'consultants' is actually abdication of responsibility by the management. If they set a 'contractor' on they believe that if things go wrong they have an easily discarded scapegoat. If I was running a business or department I would want very clear explanations up front as to why outside expertise was needed and assurances that proper procedures were in place for monitoring and controlling what they were doing. This applies to temporary staff as well.

Nasty taste in my mouth still detected. Not surprising though. They haven't learned a thing.

That's the problem of being a decent human being forced to swim in a cess pit. For many years I have watched the increasing propensity of people to climb over other's bodies to advance up the corporate ladder. One of the problems is that the darker side of modern business management encourages such behaviour in the mistaken belief it demonstrates ambition and dedication to the job.
