I was in a physical altercation with a coworker of mine. Long story short, I requested two weeks off and haven't been back since because of the hostile environment. She's been back to work, But why does it seems as though I'm more likely be te

Answers:

Well you will have to take it to a tribunal if you think it's unfair.

Hmm seems to me that this woman is a bully. The fact it got so far as physical fisticuffs would suggest that this was not the result of a one-off incident. The reason she went back to work was to get her side of the story in first. It would also seem that management are either weak or not bothered. They will be on her side because she has showed up to work. It sounds wrong, and to be fair it is, but that is the state of the world today, and I speak from first hand experience. I am not sure what company you work for, but I would seek legal advice immediately. It is also a good idea to find out if you are entitled to sick pay, and for how long and if it is for say 3 months my advice would be to start applying for jobs pronto! If you are living with your parents/married and others can support you then I would resign. However, if you will need to claim any kind of state benefit then do not resign until seeking advice, because if you resign without good reason it may affect your entitlement. You could also consider raising a grievance, but in the real world many companies drag out the investigations to smoke you out financially (i.e. when your sick pay runs out) and at the end of it all they either do not uphold your complaint (90% of the time) or they do uphold your complaint and suggest.....mediation! Often by the end of this gruelling process you have an atrocious sickness record which can prevent you from getting employed elsewhere. So I think you need to think long and hard about your next steps...

Because you asked for 2 weeks off.

If you haven't gone back you're job is forfeited - you did job abandonment and that will not help you in the least on your resume.

What you should have done is talked to human resources about the issue and let them handle it.

Since it came to physical contact, you both may be terminated. You won't know until you show back up. If neither one of you reported it, they probably don't know what happened and no disciplinary action will be taken.

You said you requested two weeks off. You did not say it was granted. If it wasn't, you should be fired for absenteeism.
