Hello my name is***** am a solicitor and I am happy to help you today. How long have you worked for your employer for?
Did you transfer via a tupe transfer to the larger company?
Ok thanks, ***** ***** original contract specify that there should be a verbal warning in all instances?
Ordinarily an employer would not have to issue a verbal warning before going to a disciplinary hearing/ written warning. However if your contract specifies that procedure then your employer is in breach of contract and you can appeal against any disciplinary action or raise a grievance (if the disciplinary has not yet taken place) on that basis.
If you feel you are being bullied the correct course of action is to raise a grievance setting out your complaints. If things do not improve and you have no alternative but to resign then you may be able to raise a claim for constructive dismissal but this would have to be very much the last resort.
If you have any further questions please ask. If I have answered your question I would be grateful if you would take the time to rate my answer. Thank you and all the best.
