As I mentioned in another thread about my new job I'm a support worker for adults with learning disabilities. I currently work in a residential group home and I'm working nightshift which basically means cleaning and sitting around on my own all night. On Tuesday night a male resident made sexual advances towards me, I sent him packing and reported it the next moring. I was told that the acting manager would be contacted and instructions left for me when I came back from my days off. All things considered it was pretty funny, now it's stopped being funny because management have basically brushed me off. I returned tonight to find my instructions are utter crap. Literally my advice was: Tell him to make tea at 10.30 sharp. Have him go to bed at 12.00 sharp. If he makes further advances I'm to tell him in a firm voice that it isn't acceptable. Whoever is on sleepover is to stay up until 12.00 instead of 11.00. The problem is telling him to go to bed goes against a direct instruction from my real manager, an instruction I signed my acknowledgement of. He's to be left alone because he can become aggresive and violent when told what to do. The other problem is that nothing stops him getting back out of bed. So he came down again tonight and started staring at me and I found it to be so uncomfortable that I had to go outside. Feeling pretty worried I contacted my senior to express my concerns and to ask for someone else to cover my shift. In a nutshell I was told: "He stares at everyone" "He won't get back up" despite the fact I've heard otherwise from other people. "Who else will do nightshift if you don't?" I was given permission to drop the shift but told to do an early tomorrow. I got a friend to cover the shift for me but I ended up being sick outside and again when I get home because frankly I'm very very worried about my own safety. This guy has been known to tell outright lies about things to spite people if he doesn't get his way, if I'm alone at night with him he could say that I've done or said all sorts to him. Which will land me in some serious shit, even if I'm cleared it's the kind of thing that sticks and can ruin your life. So what the hell do I do? I probably wouldn't be having this problem if I was a woman.
