I had a zoom call with one of the directors and a HR representative about my return to work after an occupational heath review, which suggested the relationship between myself and management had broken down, but otherwise i was fit to work.
The discussion for quite heated at times and spoke about what problems I had at work, such as feedback from one of my line managers.
I received the meeting minutes from the director on the morning after, stating the three of us in attendance.
I returned to work the following day and my manager pulls me for an informal chat in her office, and proceeds to tell me she heard everything about her that I said in the meeting as she was sat off screen. I later learn that the other director was also sat off screen.
I would have half expected the second director to be there as his desk is next to. However my managers desk is downstairs.
I screen capped the call, and you can see the director looking to them.
Is that a breach of trust and confidentiality, as the reason for the meeting was a breakdown of relationship?
I was then lied to as to who was in attendance in the meeting, and would never had found out unless she hadn’t said, although a colleague also corroborates that they were in there.
