I have been bullied and victimised at work for the last 8 or so yrs, I have had meetings with management, and have always been fobbed of, with its a misunderstanding, or its me, have had counselling, so I have had a quite considerable time off with work related stress. In Feb 2015 I was told I breached a stage 2warning, so had to attend a meeting with my ream leader, we went through the process, and was told at the end of the meeting I would recieve a written warning, I asked if I could have a review of the warning, and was informed that I could only apply for that when I had received the written warning, and was informed I would only have 7 days after receiving the letter. I work for a local authority, so it's not a small company. Weeks went by, and I hadn't recieved no letter, I approached my team leader and informed him. He said he would chase it up,, months went by, and still nothing, so informed my team leader again, I had the same response. Still recieved nothing, so i thought maybe they had been lenient and quashed it, as I had only just breached by 3 days,, sometime last year I had to go off with work related stress again, management putting extra work on me with no notification. I then recieved a letter stating I had breached the third and final warning, and that my job was at jeopardy. I informed HR and personal about how I hadn't recieved my stage 2 written warning, but they practically said tough, the disciplinary was still going ahead. I attended the disciplinary with a shop steward, who said right at the beginning that this shouldn't go ahead, they practically laughed at him so it went ahead. I explained why I had breached, told them how can I work when management are making up lies about me and getting away with it when I had proven it,,I explained they had taken my right of a review away, and was informed it was carried out a few weeks prior to the discipline and been upheld. When I asked who had asked for this review, and what grounds did they go on, no one could answer, because I never applied for the review,, and this was done 15 months after the so called stage 2 written warning,, can they do that without me applying for it, and so long after. anyway outcome was I lost my job.i have appealed against the decision, and have received a letter stating I will hear in due course, but this was 2 months ago, and still heard nothing, and I only have 3 months to apply for a tribunal. Just another thing I need to state, the manager I have stated who was bullying and victimised me, has been suspended for such things, plus a supervisor too,,, so what I'm asking is, is there grounds to go to tribunal
