How to offer your boss an ultimatum and claim accident at work compensation if something has gone wrong at work
It is a very dangerous move, in most cases, to offer your boss an ultimatum. What you need to remember when you are at work is that your boss has the power to hire and fire, and may also sanction you for behaviour that they feel doesn’t comply with the rules set out for you in your contract.
If you are fired from your job you may find it very difficult to get another position, and it can leave you in dire financial straits. However, this does not mean that your employer should be able to do whatever they want to you and you have to take it. If you feel that your employer is behaving badly, you are well within your rights to call them out on it, and demand a change.
- Make sure that you are in the right. You are much less likely to lose your job or have any other serious sanction placed upon you if you can prove that you are in the right. If there are laws you can quote then this will be even better for your cause, but if not you should still do what you can to prove that doing things your way is safer and more productive.
- Arrange a meeting. Don’t offer your boss an ultimatum over lunch, or in passing in the halls, as they are likely to be busy and thus to dismiss what you have said out of hand. If you arrange a meeting then they need to listen to you and give what you have said enough thought.
- Offer a fair ultimatum. Your boss cannot, for example, raise your wages to a huge extent if there are five other people in your team who would then all need to have their wages raised to match. Try to work out what is fair and reasonable for you to ask, and be prepared to do the other side of your ultimatum if the answer is no.
