I work in the UK for a big US company. My former manager is putting pressure on my current manager to get me fired. This didn't happen... for months, but the pressure is constant, and there are frequent incidents where my former manager sends written complaints about nothing.
I tried to go to HR. HR refuses to meet me, I need to speak with my manager. My manager puts me in a coaching programme for weeks. HR does not talk to me until I am out of the coaching programme. I try again to go to HR. HR refuses to meet me, I need to speak with my manager. and the cycle repeats.
This happened multiple times.
I want HR to do something about my former manager's behaviour, because excluding these incidents I have no real issues with my manager. But every now and them, my former manager will take the chance to make him freak out.
So my question is: as a UK employee, do I have a right to meet HR and get help?
