A Singaporean has alleged that he was bullied by his foreign colleagues at his previous workplaces due to his mental condition.
Writing to Gilbert Goh, an activist who runs the transitioning.org website that offers support for the unemployed and the underemployed, Feng Ping wrote that he has been jobless after being fired by two companies in a span of months.
Revealing that he is desperate for a job due to his dire financial circumstances, Feng Ping wrote that the loss of his jobs from the two companies “was traumatic to my emotional health.”
He added: “I was a victim of workplace bully by the “foreign talents” in my previous companies. I was outnumbered by the foreigners and the management didn’t manage (sic) to help resolve this issue. This has resulted in further worsening of my mental condition which was just a very mild case previously.”
Revealing that he had actually recovered from his mental condition and had been leading a fulfilling life after graduating with a degree in accounting and finance prior to the workplace bullying, Feng Ping wrote that the bullying worsened his mental health.
He revealed: “Currently I am jobless and couldn’t (sic) find a job despite sending my resumes to many employment agencies and even the government sector. This has caused traumatic blows to me and I am in emotional distress. I locked (sic) myself up at home everyday hoping to get calls for job interviews.”
Appealing for help, Feng Ping concluded: “My family is very poor and I couldn’t find a job, I need desperate help.” (sic) Read his letter in full HERE.
