This story is typical. Complainers against bullying, especially if done by a manager, rarely succeed and usually lead to dismissals. That's just a fact of life in the UK.

Best to use outside of work methods to put a stop to the bullying -- e.g. criminal charges under the protection from harassment act or private civil harassment suits against the bully him/herself.

Or better still organize your own guerilla campaign of countermeasures - e.g. exposure of the bully.

There are no employment rights left in the UK and employers know it. The Tribunals are stacked with Chairs that are biased/in the pocket of employers and precendents have been established allowng employees to be dismissed fairly if they whistleblow, on the grounds that the whistleblowing causes a 'breakdown in working relationships' -- the catch-all dismissal method these days.

This blogspot is one really good place to expose the bullies as it does have the attention of the media

Did you know that bullying by employers is not illegal? I was told that today by the UCU. Although the way I am being treated is not acceptable, it is still not illegal!
