A Victim of HMRC Bullying Writes

A loyal reader and HMRC staff member has asked me to publish this account of his treatment by HMRC.

I have redacted the name of the HMRC manager, so as not to prejudice any possible future criminal trial.
"....provide You with an account of the bullying NAME REDACTED was responsible for, the human impact which I have wanted to do for a long time. You could publish this and get the folks on your site to share it a bit. I am one of many.

I suffered at his hands for 4 years. Here is how it went:

Imagine work so bad, being so undermined, so utterly demeaned are You by one person and back by senior colleagues both privately and publicly You can't sleep at the start. You can't talk to Your wife as You are so demeaned you feel she'll think less of You. It has to be me doesn't it?

You hide it. You are alone.

The sleep and the harassment get bad, they are poring over minor things, they are constantly moving the goalposts, they are publicly criticising You in front of Your colleagues. The bad word is put out. 

NAME REDACTED and cronies start to make the visible impacts of their behaviour on You public. His senior and junior management back him and spread the word.

You can't concentrate. You lose what little confidence You have left. Resign? I have a mortgage. Who else would employ me. I am letting My family down. I am failing My wife. I am failing My children. These are My life. I have to hang on.

You hide it. You are alone.

The sleep gets worse. You are shaking all the time. You can't look Yourself in a mirror as You see inadequacy looking back. The harassment gets worse they are questioning your professional integrity to anyone who'll listen. Friends and colleagues are told by NAME REDACTED and his senior manager to dis-associate themselves from You. They do. You walk out of the office for a break, they walk away when they see You.

You hide it. You are alone.

You go home. You cuddle Your son. He asks: 'daddy why are You shaking so bad'. You are afraid to cuddle him after that. You wife things You are on drugs because of the shaking and that sleep and worry has left You with zero concentration. The sleep gets worse. You try to speak to NAME REDACTED to end this. You try his manager. You are told You are failing, You have failed the team, that the 'word out there' they instigated is deserved. There is no where to go in HMRC. They have destroyed You.

You hide it. You are alone.

You travel in on an underground train into work sweating and shaking at the dread of another day with NAME REDACTED and his managers doing this. A kind soul gives You a card on their way off the train for a drug rehabilitation support centre. Heroin withdrawal? Never touched drugs in My life. You are humiliated to Your core. It is now blindingly obvious.

You can't hide it. You are alone.

You take a sick day. Know You'll get panned by NAME REDACTED and his manager. Wife is at work. You line the pills on the counter. Lorazepam (30 should do the job) they gave me them to sleep. You take the first two then bottle it. Not leaving son with the smear of a suicide father. ......Do it day by day. Try to carry on managing Your team, try to escape the bad word. This goes on for 3 years. Every day.

You hide it. You are as alone as anyone can ever be in life.

You put the pills away for good... You move on. Then You pour this out at the enquiry when You are asked like a good boy. HMRC not interested.

You hide it. HMRC make sure You are alone. It was only bullying.

You read the Guardian article with no warning and realise that however bad this is there are sexual assault victims who must feel much worse. You question Yourself even more. They can move on. Why can I not?

Picture this going on forever.

Do with this what You will Mr Frost. There are those worse of than me and I live for My son."

  2. Sadly I am another victim of HMRC workplace violence.

    I wanted to say a huge thank you to the gentleman who volunteered their account of bullying. It describes very well the insidious nature at the beginning of their bullying tactics.

    I suffered an experience going on for a number of years which was VERY similar to the above. In the end, I was forced into resigning (with a mortgage) after becoming aware of a conspiracy to cover-up the violence by HR and with the final straw being when a female manager tried to threaten me by sending her boyfriend round to my home address. Still being an employee at the time, I now regret not robustly confronting the weaselly little man and reporting the matter to the local police.

    I was left a broken man and homeless. I really understand the feeling of being demeaned and am fighting back tears as a write this. These bastards would NEVER belittle me on their own, fact to face but got away with it by telling LIES (including in subsequent court proceedings) and safety by there being a number of CORRUPT management.

    I was diagnosed with PTSD. I currently await my next bout of mental health therapy.

    We will never forget that HMRC is a CORRUPT and DISHONEST organisation. Taxpayers should take note. They may be ok now but in the future they could become another victim of HMRC's UNACCEPTABLE culture.

    I would say to current victims of HMRC to seek help early on - health and legal. And if HMRC are breaking the CRIMINAL law report them to the police. Thanks again for this account and best wishes to anyone suffering from current or past HMRC violence.

  4. That's just the tip of the iceberg. Also the Nazis were mere civil servants doing what they were told. Enjoy the abuse of power the did. Happened to me too. Grievance went all the way shy of court. The c word described does not cover how bad they are. O bands to grade 6s. Rotten through to the core.

  5. I've said it before and I'll say it again. I, as an "O" grade, object to the blanket vilification of me in the above comment. I have NEVER bullied, nor cast aspersions, nor demeaned any of my staff.

    I treat every single one of them with humanity, compassion and fairness.

    I will NOT be demeaned in this way. Please either retract your statement or amend it.

    Thank you.

      I am not the poster about the O Grade....and i believe you....but let me state this as a fact,and I only speak for my office.....the O Grade are a disgrace and should be ashamed of themselves....they are there for their own self preservation...they have absolutely no idea how to manage staff...except for being on their backs constantly.
      The art of staff management is well and truly dead in the HMRC.
      Any Band O who has one ounce of compassion is moved on.

      My sympathy for you is little in comparison to the brave soul who is being tortured daily.

    2. To @ 15:31. I am NOT the poster @ 13:38. I also accept that not everyone (whatever grade) in HMRC is a bullying scumbag. A significant minority are though.
      I have been left SUICIDAL by HMRC management so don't need any more patronising 'lectures' from those still on the payroll. But, if you do still work for HMRC, what are you doing about the bullying culture? Have you considered whether it's realistic to continue working for a place that has harmed so many people ??

    3. Re anonymous at 15.31. Precious little petal. Did you even read the guys' statement at the top of this article. So sorry you were offended. Bless you. You are brilliant and it's all good. Egocentric idiots like you are why there is so much bullying in HMRC. It's all about me isn't it?

  6. Thank you for sharing your experience; words don't express how awful I feel for you and the anger I feel towards those who should have stopped this disgraceful string of events. I hope you find peace and strength to put this behind you.
    I've worked in the Dept for many years and have come across bullies only a handful of times, unfortunately the issue is rarely tackled effectively without getting senior managers onboard.
    No one is trained properly anymore for anything - and gone are the days when there was face to face assertiveness training. For a while there was money spent on understanding how teams worked and personnel strengths, in terms of training. I even got to do a residential course entitled "The Manager as Counsellor" which was invaluable.
    From training to performance management - it seems that the very infrastructure of HMRC is now a place that manufacturers bullies by default. Changing the grievance process alone isn't going to help unless every work initiative is based in staff welfare first.

  7. Why did I leave HMRC? Glad you asked.

    My wife was pregnant. My Father had died of a brain tumour two weeks previously. My mother had collapsed into a complete mess.

    So I took two weeks off to sort things out. During that time a minor issue arose that nobody else could deal with. So they didn't even try.

    Upon my return the dysfunctional scumbag I worked for spent 10 minutes screaming at me in an open office finishing off with " Oh I suppose having the dead father was useful. "

    I invited him to come with me to his manager to finish that particular conversation. He declined.

    I then lodged a formal complaint with HR and..... nothing happened. Apart from his aggression and grief from his cronies ramping up that is.

    So I resigned. New job is tough in terms of workload but devoid of the vile bullying culture.

    Never work for HMRC

  8. I am manager to a small and hardworking team, and we are that, a team. We work together for the good of the public we serve as civil servants.

    However, I do see others stating they are being "bullied" because they will not do a part of the work that is a part of the role they are employed in. I then feel put upon as I then have to do what they will not. Who is therefore the bullied?

    I feel so sorry for those I read of on here, as I have no idea that this goes on. Whatever, I don't have a family to keep or a mortgage to pay, so I'm off in a few weeks. The shits that "run" the department have ground me down. I can no longer do the job I want, as I spent more and more of my time doing stupid returns and training for which there is little need. Rather than be robust, HMRC keep bringing in changes that amount to shooting them selves in the foot, and dragging down their experienced staff.

    I have little guilt in leaving my colleagues to it, but I bet I feel 100 more times the guilt Fat Boy will when he inevitably retires, now that he has his knighthood and gold plated pension. I wish all those that have no option but to stay, all the very best for the future.

  9. Truth is HMRC is an extremely dangerous place to work.

    The severe degree of psychological violence meted outed by HR and Management, to those brave staff who call out misconduct, which leaves people damaged on every level is a national disgrace.

    I hope one day the thugs that ran riot in HMRC, part & currently, will face justice for their behaviour.

    In my case I believe a senior HR person called Charmaine De Souza helped HR & others facilitate a cover up to deny justice being served. I lost everything as a result. Maybe one day their consciences will catch up with them all (they know who they are)...depends whether they have the natural human empathy.

  13. To 15:31. Get off your high horse and accept the truth. I said o bands to grade 6 rotten through to the core. I did not include the word ALL. But seeing as you are so touchy, feeling guilty? Since I was bullied by a grade 7 and an O band toady following her instructions I have since been fortunate to have been managed by a couple of really good O band managers. 15:31 has no place being hypersensitive. Their type of self defensive bile proves my point and when their vile behaviouris challenged fake tears and an Oscar winning performance comprising of lots of mock shock is displayed. Go find a rock crawl under itit a show some humanity for those that have suffered tyranny.

  14. You did not include the word ALL but you did not include the word SOME either. Perhaps he/she doesn't like being called 'vile', 'rotten' etc if they're not like that. Feel free to through puerile abuse at me if it makes you feel better.

    1. I just find this incredibly sad Kevin. There are a couple of heart-rending accounts here of people at rock bottom. And here you are, You and others arguing semantics. Sometimes we need to big big people and truly see the plight of others and not ourselves. Some vs. All? One point. With clouding a real issue with semantics such as this is the classic example of why management have been able to get away with hurting people. But you don't care. Rather look the big man. Read the accounts above and think are the semantics worth it. Don't be a small and insular part of a problem where people can't cuddle their kids....

    2. Arguing over semantics?
      Rather, semantics tend to provide a bit of clarity for those finding difficulty with linguistics.

    3. I think 'Kevin' might be a troll account.
      Been on here before to offer a 'different perspective'.
      The stories on here are compelling and tell of Hmrc staff left suicidal.
      Why would someone choose to quibble of the trivialities of the language some use to describe the culture when the substance of the issue is of such magnitude?
      Hmrc staff, past & present, are suffering all sorts because of bullying (and in some cases apparently worse) - all of which has been covered up.
      I am afraid that such a 'perspective' as Kevin's hands all the power to the corrupt and to the oppressor.

      Delete
    4. I was merely pointing out that not every band O and above in HMRC is a 'nazi' or 'c***',and to suggest that they are is trivialising a serious problem. You may describe this as a different perspective but I prefer the term common sense.

    5. As a victim of Nellthorp who was grad 4 SCS I think using this forum to 'have your say' is belittling to what I went through. Please stop trolling Kevin. It is patronising and insensitive. Ken. Can you remove this troll?

  17. You are missing the point entirely. @10:58 is implying that everyone in HMRC at grade O and above is involved in an evil plot to destroy the lives of the people they manage and taxpayers they deal with. This is clearly paranoid insanity.
    We all know that there are massive problems with HMRC and the way it is managed by people who generally have neither knowledge of or interest in taxation but to just throw abuse at vast swathes of people many of whom are trying to do their best is trivialising a serious problem.
    This site does an important job in shining a light on scandals that the mainstream media appear uninterested in but is in danger of being hijacked by self-indulgent trolls.

    2. So to summarise. I have had a minor disagreement on here regarding whether or not all managers in HMRC are evil or not and I am now a sex offender who was retired early.
      In actual fact I retired 10 days after my 60th birthday which had been planned for many years. I was not made aware of any allegations made against me at any point in my career.
      I bet you can't even name the office where I worked.
      Poor Ken must be appalled by this nonsense.

    4. So not only am I a sex offender but I took bribes while in office as well. I assume that you have reported this to the police. Thought not.
      By the way you may feel free to name the office that I (we) worked in.
      Problem is you can't can you.

  18. And here is the problem writ large: far too many in senior management not interested in operational matters other than in terms of KPI's.

    Wholly disconnected so if some people operate with a mindset that enables and amplifies atrocious behaviours can do so with near impunity.

    Lay a "nothing to see here" culture embedded at the highest institutional levels on top of that and it is not a good place to start from.

    Needs radical change.

    1. Let me stop you there @14:09.....we have been told and have it on our internal Intranet page that KPIs will now "NOT be taken into account when assessing a staff member's performance".

    2. KPI's and performance.
      A short story, the US Navy let their "Top Gun" pilots set their own objectives and KPI's and self assess.
      The pilots all came out as exceeded KPI's and objectives surpassed. The only problem is that there were still aircraft being crashed when landing. Hmmm!

  19. In my experience Kevin. In the interests of balance, most O bands are either too weak to stand up to bullying HO's or senior grades unwilling to comply with policies which are supposed to be in alignment with the law. Or they are complicit in institutionalised bullying where there only focus is patting themselves on the back for a job well done. Not all are guilty, there are a few rare good eggs. But as soon as they get on the protected ladder of blowing ones own trumpet to further their glorious careers they become dismissive of evidence, well educated advice by lower grades that keep them in a job.
    So Kevin and like minded zeolites, I am so sorry you feel your nose has been put out of joint by my comments. But at the end of the day you are entitled to your opinion so keep your small minded, ineffective, psychopath worshipping rhetoric to yourself. This blog is for those of us that have suffered at the hands of these self serving bullies and to expose this type of behaviour. Not to appease useless precious snowflake toadies like yourself. As my signature implies, it is us decent people who are not engaging with the likes of you.

  23. Seems to me this particular thread just got very interesting. At the end of the day the blog provides a VERY useful outlet to expose and share experiences lived or witnessed. But as soon as folk start purging the management grades the better off the UK will be. My own case was also a breech in statute law which left me feeling suicidal. Just this week I have witnessed a DPA breech and cover up by HO and O bands by disposing of OH reports in an attempt to pretend disabilities do not exist. Very MUCH an attempt to hide evidence by leaders to manage vulnerable staff out of the door.

      I was one of the many victims left suicidal by HMRC misconduct and cover-up. Yes, in case you're illiterate, let me repeat, suicidal. "grow a pair" ? I have a huge pair of bollocks but that did not insulate from the mental health suffering caused by HMRC corruption. I am not ashamed to admit the affect it had on me. I am not coward. I would gladly meet up with the corrupt HMRC officers to this day to talk these matters through - but would prefer a proper investigation to protect others in the future. I would extend my offer to you, should you wish to meet up to discuss your concerns. I am certain you wouldn't be so rude face-to-face.

Sticks in the craw but I don't think it would be wise to change the rules so that HMRC would have the right to withdraw pension rights of those it sacks given its discriminatory record.
      I'm staggered that Nellthorp is appealing his dismissal for gross misconduct. Says everything you need to know about him.

    The 'mark' of the many people involved in this sick story. My partner was a victim in this, it was reported to HMRC late last year.

    The aforementioned Counter Avoidance office in St Johns House Bootle is one of the hotspots this flourished in. There are many allies of the women and Mark there. They like 21:46 are in denial at what they have done and caused.

    I do not work for HMRC, but we need an INDEPENDENT INVESTIGATION into how and why this happened for so many years unchallenged and on the face of what we can read online how so many people knew and buried their heads in the sand.

    I will not be drawn into a slanging match here, it is true for the twisted women and their allies the silence has fallen.

    Does make you wonder?

  29. Will Humphries Times is interested and has been contacted by a number of people. He has posted his details a number of times on various posts and can provide assurances re anonymity.

    I would urge anyone with info about Nellthorp case and HMRC handling to make contact.

  30. Anyone thought of writing a book called "HMRC Bullying" ?
    it would certainly help generate more publicity about whats been going on and what they have been getting away with for far far too long !!

    2. Guys & girls, this is a story about using HMRC databases to identify women that were vulnerable, move them to a directorate, drug them and rape them.

      There may be some humour in writing a book about hmrc 'bulling' but this thread/subject isn't it.

  31. EXCOM would use it as a training manual for the useless and inept to bully more effectively.

  32. If the so-called Management and Human Resources 'Cover-up' Unit at HMRC had been my partner in a domestic setting instead of my (former) employer they would have been sent to prison for coercive controlling violence for how they behaved over many years ! Much worse than physical violence as its intention is to strip human beings (HMRC staff) over any worth, self-confidence and self-esteem.

    Instead lets see them prosecuted for the criminal offences they have committed in relation to misuse of data, harassment, misconduct in public office etc just for a start...

    No wonder I am having to read of sickening creatures like Nellthorpe getting away with harming HMRC staff...its what happens when management & HR enable & cover-up bullying & corruption by the few (management) of the many (HMRC staff & taxpayers).

    Wake up people. You many not have been another a victim of HMRC violence yet but very few are genuinely safe from them. Unless and until the culture is cleaned up more people will suffer at the hands of the corrupt HMRC.

    Sir Disgrace - CLO (Chief Lying Office) of HMRC - you turned a blind eye to a very serious case of HMRC bullying which left my partner suicidal didn't you? You also deliberately and dishonestly attempted to mislead a democratically elected Member of Parliament about the circumstances of this matter didn't you?

    No wonder intelligent people - whether they HMRC staff or taxpayers (loan charge etc) have no trust in you. It's the behaviour of a thug and a scumbag.

  33. THE BIG QUESTION STILL REMAINS

    WHY - Has nobody begun a criminal investigation into what appear to be a series of conspiracies to pervert the course of justice?

    1. After collating evidence on the sexual asualt issue, I've been given a host of files that put people in the frame for PCJ.

      Once I've got justice for the Nellthorp victims I may pursue this or hand redacted copies to someone that will.

      I'll not stop until the victims get justice.

    1. Ken, I have always avoided naming names as an anonymous poster, I am more than happy, as are many ex.colleagues to submit evidence to the proper authority but shouting names via anonymity needs to be curtailed or stopped.
      Climbing the greasy pole of management is a well known technique, but unless it involves something illegal...!

  35. I'm adding to a file of sexual assault victims - this being annonomised and shared with the press and police.

    Feel free to contact me via @PaulGarlick8 on Twitter or paulgarlick888@gmail.com

    Sexual asualt, near misses & witnesses are my priority, other info will be handed over for background if they wish to run it ;)

    All annonomised, always. I will ask you to contact press directly, but will never give up your details or events that clearly identify you, ever.

    We'll do this, together, you're not alone.

  36. Paul, can I confirm something publicly from Your Twitter feed? The powers that be in HMRC and specifically Counter Avoidance were discussing Nellthorp, drugging and victims in a meeting and were laughing about it?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Not directly. SLT knew and laughed about Nellthorp behaviour. Nellthorp had sent emails at director level describing what 'roofies' were.

      He also 'bragged' about having access to vulnerable NHS patients.

      I've used some poetic license linking these together, I will be flabbergasted if I'm wrong after what I've seen.

  37. Wow, the hand grenade has certainly caused the cess pit to erupt!

    Momentum continues to increase, perhaps if the Police/IOPC don't want to touch this mess someone could organise a Judicial Review?

  39. LATEST INTERNAL HMRC INTRANET : RESPECT AT WORK : A WAKE UP CALL FOR EXCOM.
    They go on to promise respect in the workplace by holding micro meetings...whatever the fuck that is...but in the comments section it is noticeable they have urged their disciples to come out and post.....and the worrying thing i read is that management are commenting that the disrespect doesn't only come from management...it is widespread.
    What a load of bollox....the rot starts from the top and it permeates down...if any decent managers try to question it...they are moved along.....and so the rotten snowball that starts at the top becomes an avalanche at the bottom,the AA/AO grade.
    Another box ticking exercise.....bring on the strike !!!

  41. Sir Jon has poked the hornet's nest again on the internal HMRC internet about the pathetic pay we receive especially at the lower grades....his usual tick box communication strategy....he tells us he is trying his hardest to get us a good deal and won't touch our terms and conditions....pure bollox...crocodile tears.
    Watch in the coming months a "brilliant" deal which will be smoke and mirrors...a higher pay rise but having to work an hour extra a week,loss of flexi privileges,weekend and evening shifts.
    The pay rise will be the main carrot to tempt staff....but in essence with terms and conditions will make it a pay freeze again.
    You may call yourself a Christian,Jon.....but Jesus wouldn't have acted like you are......shame on you...you false prophet !!

      "PCS members in the civil service have voted by four to one in favour of strike action and action short of strike over pay, however, the ballot turnout of 47.7%, while over 6% higher than in 2018, is still just under 3,000 votes short of reaching the required 50% threshold."

      A fucking shame on you lazy bastard PCS members who couldn't be arsed voting in one of the most important votes we have had....too fucking hard to post a freepost letter...may you all rot....you fucking imbeciles...i can hold my head high.....pathetic.

  43. Ballot turnout disappointing but I'm not surprised. People pay their dues but expect that to be their insurance policy. Don't ask some to go to the effort of voting or supporting a campaign that could benefit them. Apathy leads to the loss of hard won terms and conditions. It has also resulted in the continuing pay freeze as the employer knows it can rely on the slumbering majority to do absolutely nothing to help themselves, let alone each other.
