Dear Companies House,
I am a USA citizen who worked in England on Tier 2 visa. I worked for PGS Exploration (UK) Limited, 4 The Heights, Brooklands, Weybridge, England, KT13 0NY from 26 Sep 2010 – 31 Dec 2013.
I believe that I was illegally terminated and black listed for whistle blowing.
I believe that the company directors and secretary were actively complicit in denying me my right to file a grievance and then creating false personnel documents to support a false basis for termination (performance based reasons).
I first discovered issues with my personnel file documents in October 2014 when I filed a subject access request citing the UK Data Protection Act 1998.
My personnel file contain what I know are non-compliant false instruments. None of the documents are signed by me or are corroborated with e-mail evidence. In fact, it is just the opposite.
The grievance document which was the basis for the proffering of a settlement contract agreement is not part of my personnel file, nor is a report from an occupational health nurse who noted dangerous heart and stress levels.
In other words, my grievance which claimed executive misconduct and non-compliant behaviors, including breaches in the Equality Act 2006, bullying and harassment, breach of duty of care, breach in mutual trust and confidence, and several departures from UK employment and contract law is destroyed and replaced with fake documents supporting a performance termination.
I have been on a over three-year long blog campaign demonstrating that the settlement contract agreement is not a legal instrument and is supported by forged documents. This implies that legal advisers were bribed to process these illegal documents.
The directors and secretary, as well as parent company compliance team, refuse to authenticate the documents and processes used to form my termination as legal and compliant.
The full force and resources of the company are being used to conceal the truth. All I have asked for is a thorough third party investigation.
I have reported this to Action Fraud and UK Serious Fraud Office. Neither has investigated my claim. I have also complained vehemently to the Information Commissioner’s Office.
I have published many blog articles demonstrating my claims of an illegal contract. During this time, I have been living in Thailand with my Thai wife and children.
The former secretary has brought a claim against me in Thai court. How can he PGSUK cite a problem in a Thai court when they have essentially neglected their Companies Act 2006 fiduciary duties?
No director or secretary has contacted me or addressed my many criticisms. I believe that this is because they know the settlement contract agreement and supporting documents are not legal.
This means that the Company misrepresented the integrity of the personal data being processed in my name to the Information Commissioner’s Office. Or it means that they misrepresented my qualifications to the UK Border Agency during the Tier 2 visa process.
I believe that the Thai legal system is being used improperly so they can avoid the English legal system which the settlement contract agreement is covered with.
It seems to me though that one could not both file a defamation claim in Thailand when they have a fiduciary duty to protect the reputation and interests of the UK company. Any action should be taken through the UK legal system.
My blogs are written in Thailand, but I am whistle blowing about an English and Norwegian company. My blogs are only written in English and sometimes translated to Norwegian.
I need some authority in England to investigate my claims. They are trying to destroy a whistle blower and his family.
Thank you for your consideration,
Steven D. Kalavity
