A BOSS is alleged to have called an employee worker a "fat cow" and said "karma's a b***h'' after she was diagnosed with a life-changing illness.
Shaun Chadwick, senior executive partner at Spectrum Health in Oadby, is accused of bullying after two former colleagues shared a series of comments.
One woman, who asked not to be named, had recently been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis when she says Mr Chadwick posted offensive remarks about her.
She had commented on a friend's Facebook post who was also friends with Mr Chadwick.
In a screenshot, Mr Chadwick allegedly replies to her: “Sorry to hear about your poor health – karma is a b****. I hear you’re as miserable as always. Pathetic woman.”
She claims she later received a message from him which said: “Grow up you fat cow and happy cleaning, because that’s all you’re worth. Council scum.”

The woman told Leicestershire Live : "It really upset me to think someone could think that of me, I also want him to know that I would have just ignored this behaviour while working for him.
"But now I'm stronger and I want him to know he can't talk to me like that."
The woman admits to hurling a barrage of abuse back to him, but says she did so because she was so hurt by his words.
The woman said: "I felt as though he was always laughing at me in meetings, always picking at things he said I hadn't done.

"When he started working at the surgery we got on really well, but somewhere along the line he started to dislike me.
"He was one of the reasons I left and since then I had blocked him on everything and had no contact.
"I'm not even friends with him on Facebook, but he saw me comment on a mutual friend's post. I did not in a million years expect to get what I got from him".
The exchange was reported to the Clinical Commissioning Group, CQC and Leicestershire Police.
Mr Chadwick's current employer, Spectrum Health, said the allegations made about him are "grossly inaccurate".
A spokesman said: "Mr Chadwick denies allegations made and legal proceedings via our solicitor and Leicestershire Police have commenced.
"Mr Chadwick takes such allegations extremely seriously and therefore ordered an external facilitator to investigate working culture at Spectrum Health.
