Review of the Employment Tribunals – A Personal Perspectives by: Ms M.I.Myers. Written by: Mervelee Myers for Statistical Purposes – 26th December 2017 – 15th January 2018.
How the Voiceless Vulnerable are the Victims of the Employment Tribunal Laws and Employment Tribunal Act 1996
Open to the Public
I am hereby writing this review of the Employment Tribunals resulting from the miscarriages of justice I experienced on two occasions by the Employment Tribunal Services. This resulted in me becoming part of Dr Maria Hudson 2012 Research Paper Ref: 01/12. Recommendation made to ACAS: email@example.com & www.acas.org.uk/researchpapers.
I am once more the focus of attention at https://www.gov.uk/employment-tribunal-decisions/ms-m-myers-v-london-early-years-foundation-2300047-2016. Please feel free to make use of the information, I have compiled to earn my keep after I was stripped of my dignity.
My case is similar to many of those covered in the media, print and online. Despite contacting the Daily Express: firstname.lastname@example.org, sharing some of my experiences as part of the Mental Health CRUSADE, I am/was not given a voice.

Making the Most of my Opportunities
I arrived in the UK from Jamaica in June 1992 to settle. This was after first coming here for a holiday, on a six months visa prior to that in 1991. During my visit, everyone was telling me to breach the terms and conditions of the Immigration Laws and overstay my visit. However, knowing me best with my dispositions, I refuse to take any such advice. My personal dispositions as a sufferer of (1.) Chronic Anxiety, due to the Childhood Traumas I experienced throughout my transitional developments from puberty into adulthood, meant I would not be able to cope – (Special Educational Needs and Disability Discrimination Act 2001). This was brought closer to home one morning, when there was an alarm at the Early Morning Cleaning Job. I got the job to help tide me over and make a few bobs to go back home. There was utter panic and chaos, with mostly everyone ducking, diving and running for cover.
All it took was the mention that the Immigration Authority are due to visit. I was never in trouble with the law before in my country, Jamaica. However I was reported at the Police Station for a misdemeanour, hitting my son’s Father with a rock stone. I was pregnant with my second son at the time. I am positive, now that it was my hormones dictating how I deal with certain issues (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy – Counselling www.slam-iapt.nhs.uk/southwark). I was the ripe old age of twenty at this time and coping with issues to do with, disabilities, sickness, death, poverty and other challenges like having my first child (2.) diagnosed with multiple disabilities, as being deaf and dumb – email@example.com. However, knowledge is power and I am going to now admit, that my actions were due to the state of my mind – www.gov.uk/government/publication.
The adversities and challenges I faced after my dad was struck down with (3.) Parkinson’s disease at an early age. Just as I was reaching the transitional development of (4.) puberty had taken their tolls on me, and changed my life forever. Since living in the UK, I have heard stories about detainee’s experiences. I was questioned by Immigration Officers when I received a person in the UK. I was also present at my friend’s house, when the Immigration Officers arrived and she was detained. Luckily for me, I had just received my Leave of Stay Documents (British Nationality Act 1981) to remain in the UK and had taken them with me to photocopy. Showing that I have always been keeping my Defensive Practice from as far back as, I can recall.
Defensive Practice is the name, I identify from my studies with the Open University. But it can be linked to my (5.) disabilities of Physical and Mental Health Conditions as there is a history of hoarders in my family. I can list some of the most common forms of Mental Health Conditions and diseases as part of my DNA. As well as the Progressive Health Conditions I inherited from both sides of my family. They include the following that I was diagnosed with later in life. Chronic Anxiety, Arthritis, and Diabetes. I have had counselling for the Mental Health Conditions after recommendations from the Health Professionals to seek Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. To find out why I react to certain situations, the way I do. I have discovered that I have Dyslexic Traits and Atypical Parkinsonism, which are self-diagnosis. Therefore my life is no longer such a mystery to me now. I am more empowered to be in control of, and manage my disabilities.
The Equality Act 2010 & my Defensive Practice
The Equality Act 2010 states that a person has a disability if she has a physical or mental impairment, which has a substantial and long term adverse effect on her ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities. The Act further states that there is no need for me to establish a medically diagnosed cause for the impairment. What is important to consider is the effect of the impairment, not the cause. The Disability Discrimination Act 1995 & 2005. (Refer to Judge Elliott’s Case Management Court Order of 8th June 2016)
Although Provision, Criterion or Practice is not defined by the Act, it should be construed widely so as to include, for example any formal or informal policies, rules, practices, arrangements or qualifications including one-off decisions and actions. Contract: London Early Years Foundation Statement of Contract of Employment (Issued in accordance with the Employment Rights Act 1996). (Refer to Open Letters & Grievances to LEYF and VOICE)
Therefore it should be taken into account that the Equality Act states “Direct discrimination is unlawful, no matter what the employer’s motive or intention, regardless of whether the less unfavourable treatment of the worker is conscious or unconscious”. (See ET Judgement posted online August 2017)
The Act states that “if an employer’s agent or employee (such as an OH adviser, or HR Officer) knows in that capacity, of a worker’s disability, the employer will not usually be able to claim that they did not know of the disability, and that they cannot therefore have subjected a disabled person to discrimination arising from disability”. (Refer to Medical Suspension & Dr Crawford Medical Reports)
“Therefore where information about disabled people may come through different channels, employers need to ensure there is a means – suitably confidential and subject to the disabled person’s consent – for bringing that information together to make it easier for the employer to fulfil their duties under the Act”. (Why did the Respondent refuse me assess to my FILE?
The Act says “Discrimination against a disabled person occurs when an employer fails to comply with a duty to make reasonable adjustments imposed on them”. (See ET Judgement posted online August 2017)
My Old Fashioned Values & Beliefs
When my friend was detained it was left for me, to find her other friends to come to her assistance. Suffice it to say we have fallen out on a few occasions, and made up. But the last time we fall out, I was experiencing depression, brought on by the actions of LEYF, my employers in 2011. I was the only LEYF employee, shortlisted for the position of Lead Early Years Practitioner, but I did not get the job. I just went into a meltdown, like I always do when these things happen (Breach of Contract & Discrimination on the grounds of Racism, Ageism, Beliefs and Disabilities). But because I had made the commitments to my friends, I didn’t want to break my promise. But what she done was the ultimate betrayal and the straw that broke the camel’s back. She gave my phone number to a bloke, pretending to be me. I have not spoken to her since November 2011 and that’s just another reminder of the deceits of LEYF.
Because of the way I was treated after coming back from burying my Mother and transferring to BIB, HOC and New Cross, I have not yet grieved for my mum. However, most of my angst are documented on https://.facebook.com/pulblic/Mervelee-Myers as the Daily Express Columnist states “Tech Don’t Lie” and we will find out why in due course. I have been dealing with my share of betrayals from I arrived in the UK, and taken everything in my strides. I discovered, I was only being used as convenience by my ex-husband and others. Some obviously take my kindness for weakness and my vulnerability as the cue to take advantage of me.
I experienced (6.) domestic violence and had to get the Police involved, when I was locked out of my husband’s home. The home I shared with him, yet he refused to make sure I was afforded any rights as his wife – Sex Discrimination Act 1975, Safeguarding Vulnerable Group Act 2006. The final straw came when I was beaten up one evening after work, just after returning from holidays. If my sister-in-law wasn’t present, I would have probably gotten seriously hurt or killed. For no other reasons, than I was defending my rights not to be abused. I had to run to the Police station in the pouring rain, for rescue. Brixton Police Station 867 Brixton Road, London SW9 7DD. Crime Number 1239892/0013, reported on 8.9.2000. My son-in-law came to my rescue, taking me from the Police station to his home.
I made the decision, I would not be going back to my husband’s home to live under any circumstances. I ended up in the Refuge Southwark Women’s Aid 16 Relf Road, Peckham, London SE15 (Registered Charity Number 271785) on the 14th September 2000. Despite been on the London Borough of Lambeth Housing Services list from the 8th June 1999, I was not considered much of a priority. That’s only one of the many reasons I don’t sit back and rely on handouts, or for GOD to do everything for me. I prefer to be in control of everything to do with providing for my basic needs. Despite what I was experiencing in my personal life, I managed to keep doing the two jobs. The Early Morning Cleaning, part time and Nursery Nurse, full time. I was the Room Leader for the Baby & Toddler’s Room at William Wilberforce, Lambeth Walk Day Nursery.
I was headhunted and got the job as soon as I finished studies at Lambeth College. I leave Lambeth College with a Student of the Year certificate and recommendations to attend university, based on my results. One of my former colleagues was a teenager, Joelle Lax, now manager of New Cross. I understand that Joelle Lax became one of the youngest managers at LEYF. Strangely enough I applied for a job with Westminster Children Society (WCS) back then and did not get the post in 2001. Joelle applied after and got the position and made a career for herself. However Joelle Lax was on the Disciplinary Panel that handed down the outcome of unprofessional, uncooperative, rude, intimidating, confrontational, aggressive and lacking empathy.
Despite speaking up for me that I am a professional, when they tried getting me out before I finished the Probationary at Fitzrovia, September 2009 to April 2010. (Contract Section 8 Probationary Period breached). I have been to a few places to work, spending six years at KINGS, before ending up at LEYF in 2009. I worked for Mapother House Day Nursery a workplace setting for Kings College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust where I was destined to experience the discrimination that impacted on my life with such devastating consequences. From 2004, when I started studying with the Open University, I experienced discrimination. That’s why I am included in Dr Maria Hudson 2012 – Research Paper Ref: 01/12. The Experience of Discrimination on Multiple Grounds was recommended to ACAS: firstname.lastname@example.org & www.acas.org.uk/researchpapers.
Resulting from my experiences with my ex-husband when I was (7.) physically and mentally abused, Victim Support was involved. The Police advised me to take actions against my ex, but I refused. I was assigned a Case Worker when I was in the Refuge. Despite the fact that I had registered with Lambeth Council from April 1999 to get out when my ex became abusive and threatening me, I was not considered suitable for Council Housing. I had confessed to my best friend before that I don’t think I could survive on my own. Because I lived and had a sheltered life, my upbringing did not prepare me for a living away from home. The fact I lived with my Chronic Anxiety, what I called my Parkinson’s disease, meant I always relied on others. I later discovered I have some (8.) Dyslexic Traits that are linked to my disabilities and DNA.
I have since identified that I have Atypical Parkinsonism, however I have managed to live a relatively healthy lifestyle since I studied at the OU and gained a Leve 2 Health & Social Care certificate. I lost my sense of smell in 2004 and all these can be linked to my disabilities. The same year I had an abnormal pap smear and having to go for annual checks instead of 5 yearly. I developed phobias from childhood. I will always be thankful for Southwark Women’s Aid Charity that took me under their care, when I reached rock bottom and was homeless. By December 2000, I secured my own home from Housing for Women – email@example.com, Blue Star House, and 234-244 Stockwell Road, London SW9 9SP.
I was lucky, too that I got most of the furnishing for my home from the Charity Southwark Women’s Aid. However I moved into the flat with its four walls. I would have had to pay two rents otherwise, and I could not afford to be paying rent for both places. I was brought up to be frugal and value everything that I got. I have to thank God for the people whom, He provides to help me throughout my transitional journeys. That’s why I have to continue living my life as an example to the old fashioned values and beliefs by which I was raised. That’s why I am so devastated that I can experience discrimination in two workplaces. And the Employment Tribunal can be so negligent in presiding over the miscarriages of justice that ruined my life. They are refusing to right the wrongs so that I can move on with my life. This in breach of all the Rules of Law and abusing the powers of their authority with the contingent laws mentioned in the Equality Act 2010.
Adapting To Life In The UK
I was a witness at two weddings and attended another, for people who invited me to celebrate their special occasions. I would like it be known that I attended a wedding when the plots were put in place to dismiss me from the work I was so proud and passionate about. Without prejudice, I later learned that this was sanctioned at the top by the CEO June O’Sullivan. In November 2014, there was a letter of threats directed by myself and the chef, Gloria. The CEO, June O’Sullivan, Head of Children Services & Family Rashid Iqbal and Hilda Miller Area Operations Manager were copied in. This later became self-fulfilling prophecy, when both the chef and I were disciplined after allegations were made. It started with the wedding and because the chef refused to lie, she was set up by the manager Lynne Kelly and Caroline Quirke that she stole from the kitchen. Everything is documented in the BUNDLE.
Reasons I accepted Judge Martin rejections of my RACISM claims, but explained in writing why I did not agree. Whilst LEYF was perverting the course of justice at the ET Case, because Rashid Iqbal resigned. However he still attended to lie, but they refused to allow me to question Isabella Glen on the grounds she finished her employment. There was no mention of Isabella Glen in the judgement I received. So how come the ET made such a mistake? Not only that the Employment Appeal Tribunal at www.justice.gov.uk/tribunals/employment-appeals/ somehow think RACISM was part of the case? So how come I was advised to inform the EAT about my disabilities? Once again I have to say the way the Respondent LEYF and their representative operated during the time of the case to date is an indication of what is wrong at the top of every organisations and even Legal Entity.
The Employment Tribunal and Employment Appeal Tribunal is a classic example of what MP David Lammy Review of Racial Bias and BAME representation in the Criminal Justice System – 16th November 2016. Therefore I have to direct you to Dr Maria Hudson 2012 Research Paper Ref: 01/12. The Experience of Discrimination on Multiple Grounds because I was a participant. My arguments throughout my ordeals at LEYF can be summed up by the Reviews on LEYF websites: Julia Elizabeth Gould -25th March 2016. Ingrid Curuvija Townsend – 29th August at 18:38. Jyoti Sharma – 12th March to be found in my email to Dilys Epton on 14th March 2015 about the discrimination at BIB. If I did not have disabilities, why did Neil Best agreed to the Reasonable Adjustments from my grievances? All the evidence are to be found in the BUNBLES, so I don’t know how the 3 Judges could come to the unanimous decisions that they did after five months.
I meet some of the people who were going to play important roles in my life when I was a Cleaner, working with RCO Support Services LTD, 149-157 Kings Road, Brentwood Essex CM14 4 EG. I was based at MAFF and Victory House, government buildings, where I have to be Security Cleared. I last worked with the company in 1997 before leaving to go to college. When I was in the Refuge, I spend time at my friend’s home in Bermondsey. She cooked for me and helped me to care for my hair that I’d started growing natural again. It was at her home, the realisation came to me that I have long hair. Although I was told this fact by my sister-in-law, I have no memory of it, when it was long. I recall the story that I had long hair and it was cut short by the lady in whose care I was left.
My hair was cut off with the assumption that it was responsible for my (9.) lack of growth and development. I was gobsmacked and have the photos to prove my discovery. Photographs are important to me for a variety of reasons. Primarily they help me to know my history and to capture the Legacy for my future generations of my family. Hence the reasons for my social media footprints https://www.facebook.com/public/Mervelee-Myers. It so happened that I got my flat in Bermondsey. My friend advised me to order my bed, because I did not have any personal household possessions. In the meantime I improvised making my bed on the floor, until the one I ordered arrived. My next door neighbour, TESS, may God RIP her soul introduced herself and take me under her wings.
I gave her a spare set of keys to my home and that’s why I am so angry to this day, the way she was treated by Social Services and the authorities. She was left to die on her own, without any assistance, despite the times I tried getting help for her. I know she too experienced mental health issues as we developed that bond. Luckily for me, I developed (10.) resilience that empower me to always be applying the early intervention strategies that come to my rescue in times of needs. That’s’ why I am passionate about working with children and young people. I am an advocate of inclusion, who is breaking down barriers to deliver the Early Years Curriculum, as well as supporting others to empower themselves in implementing and promoting the British Values that I was brought up with, www.gov.uk/government/publications.
People have been kind to me, most of the time, but you have to look out for the haters. They will hate you for no reasons whatsoever. I qualified at Lambeth College after trying my hands at different work and studies to find out where I could fit in. When I completed the Care Assistant trainings, I went back to doing cleaning. I could not stomach what happened to me when I went to the Residential Care Home to do the practical. I put that down to my experiences at home, helping my mother to care for my dad and grandma. That’s why I am convinced after hearing about mama’s life from her best friend and my elder breda… that mama experienced Mental Health Conditions. Getting counselling from the Maudsley Hospital www.slam-iapt.nhs.uk/southwark, helped me to come to terms with everything that happened in my life from childhood.
I accessed the counselling on the advice of the recommendation of the Occupational Health Doctor. This was when I was sent on Medical Suspension to deny me of my basic rights as a vulnerable employee. An employee who experienced bereavements, months after saying my final goodbyes to my mother who suffered dementia and did not recognise me until the day I was leaving. That’s why I am getting involved with advocacy and is a Dementia Friend www.dementiafriends.org.uk. Because as an empowered educated woman, I was able to diagnose mum’s dementia, listening to my family talking about the changes in her behaviours. As is the norms for me, I went to the Occupational Health prepared with my answers to the questions ready. I do not always function well under pressures.
Doctor Laura Crawford advised me to get (11.) Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to find out why I react the way I do to certain situations. That’s why I am convince that mama experienced a number of Mental Health Conditions, which made her the sort of persons who she was. At one of my placements, Turney Special Needs School, Education Act 1981, during studies at Lambeth College. The teacher was impressed with me and my work as I was/is/am passionate about inclusion. However, I just could not take up the offer of applying for the job. Because I know that I would not be able to cope (12.) emotionally resulting from my childhood traumas – Children and Young People Act 2008. I had done better than I expected, going back into studying. I was headhunted by the time I finished studying and went straight into working.
As a Room Leader, I mentor students on placements and liaise with other professionals. At times I see some of those peers from colleges and trainings, who I helped with completing their studies and they are doing so well. There are others, who I mentored on placements as the professional in charge and they too are doing well. There are others whom I supported throughout the time they studied at university and with other training providers, and they are doing well too. I supported them with writing reference, coaching them to go for interviews and they too are doing well.
I trained and mentored some in the workplaces, more recently at LEYF, when I edited their work for Leadership and Management trainings. When they are doing higher level studies to be in Leadership and Management. When they are doing the Apprenticeship or Students on placements. If you check LEYF websites, I can name some of my former colleagues who are now in Leadership and Management. However despite starting at (WCS now LEYF) with a Foundation Degree In Early Years, and completing Working Together For Children in 20110, my career and life have been destroyed. That’s why the ET needs to go back to the time when they presided over another miscarriages of justice.
Taking On Advocacy & Developing My Voice
I am part of Dr Maria Hudson research that support my arguments about how vulnerable employees are been let down by the Rules of Law on technicalities written in contracts employees sign. I was told by the Union Solicitor Arwen Makin, who tried tricking me into not appealing the Disciplinary Outcome that the discrimination was written in the contract. There was nothing to be done excepting to accept it and in no time it would be taken off my FILE. But it should not have been on my FILE in the first place, there was a plot to dismiss me. There were trumped up allegations and complaints that led to the Disciplinary labelling me as uncooperative, unprofessional, rude, intimidating, confrontational, aggressive and lacking empathy. Well this was already premeditated and coming from the allegations at Rumi’s wedding on the 4th January 2015.
Statements were sent to Dilys Epton, Senior HR, who tried trapping me to take out a Grievance when they could not prove I breach the contract. There were complaints and investigations, and I was prepared to give up my rights, but the discrimination only got worse. I refused to accept the discrimination for the second time and ended paying the price two times. When I was doing the Learning Support Assistant training, to get back into working as part of my Continuing Personal Professional Developmental Plan (CPPDP). This was a Career Change advice, recommended after writing four Open Letters.
The Open Letters were sent to the following: Prime Minister David Cameron, www.gov.uk.Number 10, from whom I got response in writing promptly. There was also contacts from the Department of Education, David Chapman, via the telephone messages and conversation in October 2015 – January 2016. I later contacted PM Theresa May, in 2016 about my plight and got an automated response, but is not sure if there is any follow up? The union representing me www.voicetheunion.org.uk, threw me to the wolves, and abandoned me, the same way that UNISON did at Kings. They are still taking fee and trying to trick me to sign away my Membership rights to get representations. This was after the Union Rep Darren Mahon disappeared after accompanying me to the Disciplinary Hearing. He promised he could get me a package.
This goes to show how the unions operate unscrupulously and are on the sides of the employers and not the employees. The same happened to me with http://unison.org.uk at KINGS. I have correspondences to prove my arguments to the level of discrimination faced by vulnerable employees. That’s why I am not one who is fooled by UNISON with their Our Statement On Modern Slavery that I copied from the website. I can categorically say without a shadow of a doubt that I Mervelee Myers can prove that “As a trade union, UNISON is not concerned with working conditions and employment rights of its 1.3m members, working people in the UK and worker’s rights globally.
The solicitors Bates Wells & Braithwaite www.bwbllp.com is another example of the unprofessionalism in the Legal Justice System and Employment Law and the Employment Rights Act 1996. My arguments are backed up by MP David Lammy Review of the Racial Bias and BAME representation in the Criminal Justice System – 16th November 2016. There are employees out there experiencing discrimination, all account of the unions refusing to give us proper representations. As for ACAS, they are another story. The amount of messages that were left on my phones as they tried to curry favour for LEYF is laughable to say the least. There is a saying that money is the root of all evil. I have proven this to be a fact, where employers are concerned. I had a similar experience with Capsticks of Wimbledon that represented KINGS when I was left to represent myself against Kings College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.
Last but not least I sent a letter to the Daily Express firstname.lastname@example.org and www.express.org.uk, because I supported the Mental Health CRUSADE. Sharing stories about my experiences of having Mental Health Conditions from childhood. But as I have come to realise, only celebrities are given a voice to share their stories in the tabloids and other media. This goes back to what I learned via studies, that those who equip themselves, and are aware of their rights, are more likely to reap the benefits from the systems in place to offer support. The more knowledgeable make sure they make use of all the available capitals to benefit themselves and their families. The others of us are treated less favourably than animals. We are made into voiceless vulnerable by the systems and establishment in place to protect us from discrimination.
I have gone the extra mile, empowering myself to become an advocate, breaking down barriers to get on with my life and offering support to others. Embarking on research, I discovered that whilst I was on Medical Suspension from LEYF, my stories were appearing in the media and I was not surprised. In April 2015, www.mqmentalhealth.org/Mental-Health/Mental-Illnesses is one such site that reference my story published on Social Media. Then on the 3.4.2015 I know more about Parkinson’s disease than most… was featured on www.parkinson.org.uk. My Personal Experiences of Parkinson’s Disease – updated 17.8.2017 https://plus.google.com/1000939131463790195264/post/YoJDPGvhGMG is at the website. My internet footprint can be found all over cyberspace.
That’s why when the opportunity was offered, I went back to volunteering with my tutor at http://stormempowerment.com/, STORM Family Centre. With the hope that I would be getting on the training programme run by HCT Group. To be doing mentoring and to be teaching young people and adults, for preparation into the workforce. Instead nothing much have changed since, others are making progress and I am even getting shunned. Because some are distancing themselves from me once they are on the road to success. Last but not least, those I mentored during the time I work at LEYF are the ones who are so ungrateful. However I do not blame anyone for the decisions and choices they make about how they live their life. Some have lost their moral compass because of manipulations of the psychopathic employers that have lost their ways and sight of the bigger picture.
But I know whatever is done in the dark will be revealed and come to light one day. Hence the reasons that Julia Elizabeth Gould, Ingrid Curuvija Townsend and Jyoti Sharma named in the ET bundles as Jyoti Bhardwaj, Deputy Manager of BIB, backed my story of discrimination at LEYF websites. Going back to KINGS they tie in with me raising concerns in my role as a Whistle blower to UNISON, KINGS HR Department, www.ofsted.gov.uk/parents, Southwark Council: email@example.com and the Local Safeguarding Children’s Board to get training to complete my OU studies, as part of my CPPDP. However I can’t help but wonder why I am the one who have to face the discrimination, just because of my (9.) hidden disabilities. Leaving me open to be judged, misunderstood and penalised for the DNA I was born with and part of my multiple identities.
Due mostly to ignorant bigots, who are the quickest to judge before finding out the fact http://www.justice.gov.uk/tribunals/employment/claims/responding. I was always on the lookout for the ideal job, knowing that with my hidden disabilities, I have to be extra qualified and prepared to go the extra mile. I thought I found the ideal job with the NHS at Mapother House Day Nursery, Kings College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. I worked as Preschool Leader at Family Support Network, but I believe that was more to prepare me for the future. I had an interview with an Ofsted Inspector when gaps were identified in my Professional Development Plan (PDP) as a Preschool Leader. I’d done the trainings as part of my PDP with the OU www.open.ac.uk/ceremonies.
I have not stopped doing researching, and updating my knowledge since. Everything can be accessed in cyberspace, about my qualifications and experiences and expertise. I came face to face with putting the theories I had learned at Lambeth College into practice where I got a Student of the Year Award, at Family Support Network. I was the Preschool Leader, working to develop my PDP, which was to set me on the road to seeing my thirst for knowledge about Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) becoming visions of realities. I also got top marks for all of my modules including the Community Assignment. My tutors were persuading me to write about my experiences, because of my assignments. Which were about my personal experiences, growing up with transitional developmental childhood traumas from puberty. As well as the impacts on my first child who was misdiagnosed with multiple disabilities. I learned from helping my Mother as an informal carer from an early age.
Yes, I was curious yet passionate at the same time about extending my knowledge about Special Educational Needs & Disabilities (SEND). Therefore it was no surprise when I was reading the Nursery World Magazine article about (13.) Autism Spectrum Disorder, and could relate to the behaviours of a child in the setting. I therefore set to work applying knowledge from studies at Lambeth College to share and support the child and his family. I was able to provide information to other professionals, involved with the child and family, working collaboratively from a shared perspective. I was only involved, working alongside other professionals supporting children with SEND when I done a placement at Turney Special School.

Importance of Research & my Defensive Practice
I was privileged to gain valuable experiences working at William Wilberforce, Lambeth Walk Day Nursery where I got the job via my tutor Yvonne Fletcher now Whittaker after I was headhunted. At Mapother House Day Nursery, Kings College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, I found my calling to be an influencer, leader, role model and mentor. Matters came into perspectives and I began making plans now I thought I found my ideal job. In 2004, I enrolled with the OU firstname.lastname@example.org and started studies. The ups and downs at KINGS are documented, therefore I won’t go into too much details now. Excepting to say that my ideal job that I thought would be the place where I intend to retire from or return home… Turned out to be the worst nightmare, and where any hopes of going up the career ladder ended.
I would advise you to read Dr Maria Hudson 2012 Research Paper Ref: 01/12, the Experience of Discrimination on Multiple Grounds recommended to www.acas.org.uk/researchpapers, to understand why. I have to be making sure to find out what LEYF has done that is stopping me from getting a job since I was forced to resign with a nervous breakdown on the 27th September 2015. Days after attending Middlesex University and meeting the two professors from the Centre for Research in Early Childhood CREC in Birmingham – Amber Publications Chris Pascal and Tony Bertram on the 19th September 2015. My credibility about meeting the professors can be verified on https://www.linkedin.com on the 22nd September 2015. I also spoke to Mine Conkbayir email@example.com. This is the same date I was called to CO for a chat with Neil King.
But the meeting was to blackmail into writing an on the spot resignation. Years before I had the same experiences at KINGS that I have years later with even worse consequences from having the same experiences at another workplace. What with LEYF, the systems, establishments and the Employment Tribunals, making my life a living hell from the 23rd July 2014 to date. But true to colour, and self-fulfilling prophecy, it’s a case of history repeating itself. Therefore let me go back to 2004 when I appeared in the South London Press: www.icsouthlondon.co.uk. Again 2006 I get a diagnosis for (14.) Chronic Anxiety, inclusive of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), at The Landor Road Surgery.
This was so I could prove that I have (15.) disabilities, in order that I can do my Health & Social Care Level 2 exam, sponsored by UNISON, with the OU. In 2006 I contacted UNISON and raised concerns about discrimination. I contacted KINGS HR Department after years of keeping a defensive practice and sharing concerns with the manager internally. Then when no actions were taken I contacted Southwark SEND Section for advice. I had contacted the Local Safeguarding Children’s Board about training as part of my PDP as a student with the OU, before. I have to adhere to British Ethical Guidelines as part of the contractual agreements, signed by the manager Glendalyn Aboayge. I followed up contacting www.ofsted..gov.uk in writing. And spoke to an Ofsted Inspector during the inspection about inappropriate practices, but not as a whistle blower.
The Equality Act 2010 have Protected Act and Protected Characteristics. But this was to set the precedent for the continuing discrimination that would result in the blacklisting and networking that ruined my career and triggered my childhood traumas into (16.) Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). I was completing my studies with the OU when I was hit with a number of events that take me back to my childhood. My breda BYRON, was struck down with (17.) Colon Cancer and died within three months of the diagnosis of 3-6 months to live. Then the allegations came fast and furious and I didn’t know what hit me. I became (18.) paranoid and thought back to past events when I developed childhood traumas as well as the fact of how provocations can cause any person to act out of character.
My breda ASHTER was provoked and committed a criminal act and died in prison. I relied on my GP for support and was signed off sick, but knowing that work keeps me going was back at work as soon as I could. But the fact I had raised concerns and sought advice, meant I set myself on this rotating treadmill that I was unable to get back off. I was like a sitting duck and the target for everyone to mistreat. After evaluation of the situation, I decided to get the expert’s opinion about whether my breda’s sudden demise was affecting me. I self-referred to Occupational Health and after seeing two professionals, was passed fit to resume working. Take my foolish advice, once you challenge the status quo, you will end up suffering like I have done over the years.
I was signed off sick from work, but on returning, the discrimination escalated with full force. In 2006 I take time out, going for a holiday in the USA with family to get away from the situation. Working in any toxic environment, with colleagues who have been sanctioned to discriminate is very stressful and leading to disabilities been triggered and exacerbated into unmanageable and uncontrollable medical conditions. Because I was no longer able to manage my (19.) Mental Health Conditions – Depression to carry out normal day-to-day activities as was the norms, from I started working in the Early Years Sector. This time I was on my own, abandoned, shunned and excluded by my colleagues. Luckily some of the parents came to my rescue, writing resume for me. I was admitted to KINGS Accident & Emergency from work with (20.) Panic Attacks. But they refuse to give me a Medical Report at the hospital.
When I could no longer cope with carrying out normal day to day activities, because of having to be signed off work sick, I resigned. I decided to take my case to the ET, after the HR Department, UNISON, Southwark SEND Section, the Local Safeguarding Children’s Board, the Local Educational Authority and Ofsted colluded to undermine the work I had done during my studies with the OU. But before that I was given the run around by ACAS. Even the CAB refuse to advise me because they said I have a union, but I did not. I have to deal with the unprofessionalism of the unscrupulous solicitors Capsticks of Wimbledon. I was even in for a bigger shock when the GP who gave me the diagnosis of Chronic Anxiety in July 2006, to do my exam with the OU, refused to give me a Medical Report.
I had also gone for checks when there were (21.) abnormalities in the Pap smear I had done in 2004. That was about the same time I began to lose my (19.) sense of smell. Years later I was to find the evidence linking my (22.) deficits and limitations to the DNA over which I have no choice. Most of my deficits and limitations are linked to my DNA from conception and there is not much I can do about it. Excepting of course continuing to manage my disabilities by maintaining my healthy lifestyle. But because of lack of knowledge on the part of LEYF Leaders and Management Team, I am again being penalised. All you have to do is take my arguments about how LEYF breached the contract I signed on the 7th October 2009. The contract was not reviewed and updated in line with the Equality Act 2010.
Dilys Epton Senior HR did not know that in sending me on Medical Suspension and to Occupational Health, this was covered by Disability Legislation and if so what Reasonable Adjustment should be considered. LEYF used my vulnerability against me, refusing me access to my FILE, whilst breaching the Data Protection Act 1989 to breach the contract I signed. I was placed under additional significant workplace stress triggering my childhood traumas into PTSD. When I transferred to BIB, I was expected to work in the Baby Room, despite me having an agreement about not working with the younger children at the interview in May 2009. At HOC I was being offered a job in the Baby Room, and the two weeks I spent involved lots of sitting and lifting and using double buggy to take children to the Park, sometimes two times per day.
I was getting shocks from the plastics, mentioned in Dr Laura Crawford Medical Report from the Occupational Health Medical Suspension. When I raised concerns I was treated like a liar. Just like what was picked up in Dr Maria Hudson’s 2012 Research Paper Ref: 01/12. And about how Black Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) employees are treated by employers – (David Lammy MP Review of Racial Bias representation in the Criminal Justice System). In my case by the Employment Tribunal and Employment Appeal Tribunal. More recently there is the case reported in the www.express.org.uk of Friday December 29 2017 by John Twomey Executive called ‘pikey’ and ‘gyppo’ by bullying boss wins £280k pay out”.
The Deputy Manager of HOC, used my concerns about my disabilities and the impact this might have on the safeguarding of children in how I was able to carry out normal day-to-day activities reporting that I refused to supervise the children. Thereby, continuing the discrimination that came out of the Disciplinary labelling me as the following: uncooperative, unprofessional, rude, intimidating, confrontational, aggressive and lacking empathy. I was taking on my role as everyone is responsible for safeguarding children. At New Cross I was in the Baby Room when allegations were made, within a month of me returning to work. I was left on my own with the younger children downstairs, with the telephone to call for help if I need to go to the toilet. I have a Reasonable Adjustment agreement in place after putting in the grievance and meeting with Neil Best on the 16th July 2015.
I eventually got a job in the meantime, after almost giving up hope, of ever finding one. The impacts on my Mental Health after been turned down time after time, without an explanation at times began to take a toll on my (23.) emotional health and wellbeing. Realisation came one day when I was called just hours before an interview that it was cancelled. Then I was asked at one interview if I was attending lots, and the penny finally dropped. But still I continued with the hope my qualifications and qualities would show through, but it was not meant to be. The job I got with support from my friend, colleague and supported Winnifred Jacques was at Peckham Settlement. But I was treated so unfairly by yet another former colleague, Augusta Foster, whom I supported, it’s unbelievable. I had supported her at KINGS, found her job, mentored her for interviews and written references for Ofsted and Southwark Council for her.
But I was rescued because of my generosity of spirits in helping others regardless of what’s happening in my life. By this time I was experiencing depression, talking about my problems help me get rid of the angst. I was told about the fact Westminster Children Society (WCS) now LEYF is recruiting, Alev Sagnak. We were colleagues at KINGS, but she left once the undermining of staff by the manager started. During the time I was at the ET with KINGS, I was holding down a full time job and representing myself. I am aware of every tricks in the book that HR Departments, Unions, Solicitors, CAB, Employers, GP, Legal Advisors, etc will use to sabotage vulnerable employers. Name it and they have done it to me from 2004 to date in the UK. That’s why I refuse to allow the ET to repeat the history of discrimination that destroy my life because some of the Judges decided to play devil’s advocate and continue to judge me.
How the Establishment and Systems Collude To Discriminate Against Vulnerable Employees
Firstly the Department for Works & Pension DWP giving me the run around when I was to submit my ET Form. And again when I was to get Fee Remission, but on each occasion, I exercised my rights, to get what was due to me. However that did not help me in preparing a RACISM claims, when everything is in my head and I have no concrete evidence. Then it was the turn of Judge Martin, who decided to repeatedly strike out the RACISM claims that were sent for review by Judge Baron. The Respondent’s Representative Mr John Fenton is a pathological liar. He lied in Court to Judge Elliott, in the presence of Winnifred Jacques at the Case Management on the 8th July 2016. He continued to lie in writing throughout. The ET tried stitching me up with the Telephone Conciliation, I had to put my concerns in writing once again.
I copied the ET into every correspondences with Mr Fenton, when he failed to comply with the Judges Court Management Orders. It later turned out Mr Fenton have no Legal trainings. This was only disclosed to me after the adjournment of the case. When Mr Fenton, get the Court Orders lifted to try tricking me to sign away my rights to having a hearing and accepting three of the four thousand pounds (£3,000.00) that was the Commercial Settlement on offer. Mr Fenton claimed to have no memory of the fifty eight thousands (£58,000.00) that was offered during the Telephone Conciliation. But I have to tell the world how they tried to trick me about the Telephone Conciliation as well. If in any doubt about whether I am a credible witness, I maintain my Defensive Practice. Her Majesty Revenue & Custom HMRC got in on the act, breaching the Data Protection Act 1989.
But I quickly put them right, as I still don’t know where they think I was all this time before turning up at my address in late 2015? It seems every establishment and systems have it in for me, as I have to go to Southwark Council to let them know I am not an idiot. It took the DWP almost two years to sort out my Housing Benefits. In the meantime all they done was further exacerbated my Mental Health Conditions into PTSD. No it did not stop there because Southwark Council SEND Section think they could frighten me, like what they done to me at KINGS with their threats. In case they were not aware the volunteering I done with www.resourcesforautism.org.uk happen to be my work that I shared with the school that enlisted my help in writing an Educational Care Plan for the child.
Because the parent told the school about my contributions to her child and the family as a whole unit promoting inclusion as a professional. Therefore I reminded Southwark of what they done to me at KINGS and to make sure it’s on record. Imagine I was unable to get a placement in a Primary School in Southwark, when I was doing my Learning Support Assistant trainings, why was that? As before I was getting the run around after attending interviews. I started making every efforts getting involved socially to get back into working, but nothing was been done to help me. However I refused to give up. After the harrowing ordeals of yet another ET case, I waited for the outcome and contacted them. Only to be given some flimsy excuses for why the judgement was taking so long. Eventually it was posted online after taking five months to copy and paste the Respondent’s Summary.
Perverting the Course of Justice
LEYF set out to dismiss me from my job from the time I returned from my son’s wedding in January 2014. The changes that started with the culling of prominent Leaders and Management like Karen Walker, Head of Children Services and Families was just the beginning of my experiences until I was forced to resign with a Nervous Breakdown. It was a surprise to everyone when Karen Walker resigned and others followed, until even Julie Weise done the same. Julie Weise, manager of Luton Street left before I returned in January 2014. However she left me a Leaving Card. I meet up with Julie Weise the last time at the New Year Staff Party 2014. I meet Rashid Iqbal, who replaced Karen Walker in passing at the party for the first time.
Rashid Iqbal was an insider brought in on Positive Discrimination to replace Karen Walker. The same happened to meet when I was the only LEYF staff shortlisted for the position of Lead Early Years Practitioner and was not considered good enough and an outsider got employed. After that more female employees were leaving in their droves. The story doing the rounds was that they could not get on with the CEO June O’Sullivan. The organisation changed and needed to be meeting managerial targets that were no longer promoting and implementing inclusion. If in doubt I attended ResPublica www.respublica.org..uk Clubbing Together: The Hidden Wealth of Communities by Keith Cooper and Caroline Macfarland, and write a report. I attended the meeting with the Deputy Manager Stacey-Jane Whitfield to represent the manager Julie Weise, who should have represented the CEO.
By this time I was doing the work of the professional as a graduate of the OU, applying the top down bottom up approaches of the experts (qualifications & trainings 1997-date). On the 19th January 2016, Stacey-Jane Whitfield wrote on Facebook about the impacts of not getting a lunch break. Especially if one have diabetes (Contract Sections 2009, Equality Act 2010 and the ET Judgement 2017). Considering the fact that I joined LinkedIn resulting from the CEO Memo to employees to contribute to her BLOG, in 2012. I invited colleagues with reservations to join before Social Media is the platform that it is today. Yet in January 2015 after writing LEYF on my Doorstep, Hilda Miller told me I must remove all mention that I work with LEYF from my profiles. I was barred from getting updates from the Nursery World FORUM, where I was a contributor.
However once I got access again, I had correspondence from the editor of the Nursery World Forum. I worked in partnership with Community Playthings, but after doing a presentation on the 26th October 2016, everything changed. I have agreement with them to have my work in video and photographic formats to help me get back into working and this have not been honoured. The CEO-MBE June O’Sullivan visited BIB with one of LEYF trustee’s Aletea Siow on the 28th January 2015. This was to try and stitch me up to breach the Social Media Policy & Procedures. See From: June O’Sullivan MBE Sent: 29th January 2015 13:03 To: All Nurseries; COT; Trustees Subject: Visit to Bird in Bush. Please refer to LEYF Policy On Use Of Social Networking Sites September 2010 & Behaviour Management to see how LEYF continue to abuse their power of authority and operating contrary to the Equality Act 2010 and other updated and new Rules of Laws.
Yet when I ask for my FILE that I was refused access from January 2014 whilst still at Luton Street, I was refused. I have since requested disclosure of information from LEYF only for them to respond with a letter dated 2nd January 2018 Without Prejudice Subject Access Request. As with my dealings with LEYF from the time I realised they set out to destroy my life (refer to email to Senior HR Dilys Epton 14th March 2015), I haven’t got a clue what they are doing. That’s why I am challenging the Employment Tribunal Judgement to be (cohesive: based on those in the establishment and systems that are prepared to discriminate against me in support of LEYF). I should not have been subjected to another miscarriages of justice by the Employment Tribunal. Leaving me to be going through the EAT.
The results are that I am facing further discrimination from scammers, terrorists and unscrupulous people because I am vulnerable. Considering I have all the evidence in the BUNDLE, which the letter from LEYF can be used to substantiate my Witness Statement and Summary of the ET Case. The 3 Judges might have been tricked by the continuing unprofessionalism of the Respondent Representative Mr John Fenton, who by the way do not have Legal Trainings. The input of Solicitors Bates Wells Braithwaite that chose to send me a letter of threat on the 24th September 2015. Then keeping a low profile after the Open Letter and other correspondences. Only to resurface in August 2017 after the judgement was posted online, reminding me about the threats. They get Facebook and Twitter Legal Team to contact me. And they have since disappeared again, despite me addressing their threats.
I would like to bring to the attention of the world my letter to the Daily Express Mental Health Crusade Dealing with the stigma of Mental Health that can be accessed on Social Media. Then refer to Health Management Medical Advice for Business. Boston House, 2nd Floor, 63-64 New Broad Street, EC2M 1JJ. Email: teamA4@healthmanltd.com Website: www.healthmanltd.com Web link: http://maps.google.co.uk/maps… I was advised to seek Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to find out why I react to situations the way I do. I was the EYFS Coordinator, SENCO and Multigenerational Working Approach Facilitator.
Therefore what give the 3 judges the rights to make a judgement based on the Respondent’s Summary? If you go back to look you will find this happened after allegations about Rumi’s wedding, the investigations were decided from the allegations and complaints. The Disciplinary Outcomes were based on the allegations, complaints and investigations. And I could go on and on showing how the cohorts colluded throughout from January 2014 at Luton Street to the time I resigned on the 27th September 2015 to use my vulnerability to destroy my Mental Health. Therefore I should not have had to be going through the EAT.
Evaluation: How the Employment Tribunal Contingent Laws and Legislation are putting Employees at risk of Mental Health Conditions and other Disabilities
I am making sure I take back my good name from what’s at https://www.gov.uk/employment-tribunal-decisions/ms-m-myers-v-london-early-years-foundation-2016. I am a Writer, Photographer. Blogger and Advocate of Inclusion. As a result of the breaching of the Rules of Law, everyone seems to think it’s a field day to jump on the bandwagon to demonise Mervelee Myers and I am here to tell the world about it. So the like of my Consultant Winsome Duncan of www.peachespublication.co.uk will know that I refuse to allow another person to take advantage of me. That also goes for Ryan Clement http://www.rayanclement. The Police and Ambulance Services won’t escape either, because what would they have done when they showed up at my home on the 30th October 2017, if I was agitated?
Because of my disabilities both Mental and Physical, I am never in a rush to do anything, as this can make life so much more difficult for me. As with the first ET case with KINGS, I only became aware of certain pertinent fact that hinges on the outcome. After using delaying tactics to confuse me, the solicitors waited until the final moment, to be exact the day before the start of the case to send an offer of four thousand pounds (£4,000.00). I had no time to consider the offer as I could only open it just before the start of the case. I was working full time with LEYF by this time. I was representing myself yet there were three solicitors and barristers representing KINGS. In the end they confused the Judges who in the end confused me.
This time around, I was representing myself and only became aware of some information after the case finished. But what’s most important are some of the discrepancies to be found in the judgement. One in particularly that’s of interests is the fact no mention was made about one of the witnesses, Isabella Glen. Since she was the one who done the investigations and responsible for the Disciplinary, I find that really strange. Another matter of interest is the Employment Appeal Tribunal decisions mentioning the RACISM claims, as if it was part of the ET Case hearing. But since the Racism claims was strike out repeatedly, how did it come to get mentioned in the Appeal?
Even if that unscrupulous Barrister Ryan Clement made mention of it, that is also showing that he was involved in defrauding me of my money by submitting irrelevant information that have no bearings on the case. I have not worked since I was forced to resign with a Nervous Breakdown on the 27th September 2015. Now I can’t move on with my life through no fault of my own. I have to conclude that by posting the judgement online this has become more of a hindrance for me. Because Winsome Duncan was helping me to set up my online business until she got ideas to make money out of me because of my vulnerabilities that were disclosed in the judgement online.
Winsome Duncan hatched her plans the same way LEYF done to wear me down. In the process she got her Employment Barrister to scam me and I don’t know what he done for the £9,000.00 – nine thousand pounds he charged my husband to prepare the Appeal. I was so relieved, when he offered to take over the Appeal. I just turned over everything to him and left him to get on with the work. But Winsome Duncan seemed to have plans to harm me at her birthday party. When I was unable to attend. She send the Police and Ambulance Services to my home to section me. Whether they know it or not, this is radicalisation and terrorism. I aim to get justice for what has happened to me. I am holding the Employment Tribunal responsible for making my life the hell that it has become.
Manal Shabani – edited – English as Addition Language (EAL) – Key person for Melissa and Melinda at Luton Street Community Nursery, London Early Years Foundation (LEYF):
Mervelee each time I see my children’s success I only say nobody deserves to say thanks after God expect you. If everybody wrong don’t let them drive you mad. There are many outstanding teachers who are victims. Teachers like you, who decided to quit the Education System with the Local Education Authorities. And they are doing outstanding jobs, helping students. We love you.
We love you to teach our children. Please let’s speak off live. I admire your determination to stand up against them.
Mervelee Ratty Nembhard · Manal, I will be in touch. Each time I think I am moving forward, they do this to me again. So I am showing them what I am made of. I build their brand and #JuneOSullivan will pay for sanctioning the discrimination, if it’s the last thing I do?
Mum gave me the phone to tell you something from the deepest depths of my heart (not for real 🤗). That you are the person who taught me good manners, to make friends and to say what you believe in. I am turning 11 in 3 days my birthday wish will be for you to have a great life and that you succeed in whatever you are doing. Stay strong you are a soldier with no armour except for knowledge. Use it wisely or you will get beaten up by the big bully who has all the armour and weapons but no knowledge. I miss you so much!
P.S: I did that quote on the spot!!
Naheel Julene Brown Legister · So sweet Melissa. Good job. Keep up the good work of highlighting the good work of others and using it to motivate them through rough times.
Taurus: Sharing your expert knowledge will be gratifying. People are eager to learn from you because you take a gentle approach to educating.
