Ultimately you do not have to put up with bullying and intimidating conduct at work. If this continues and it affects your health you may be able to resign and claim constructive dismissal.
However before a tribunal would consider a claim of this nature you need to have exhausted internal grievance processes.
I would therefore advise you to put a grievance in writing setting out in as much detail as possible the bulling conduct, giving times and dates if possible.
You should state in the grievance that you consider that this amounts to a breach of trust and confidence and a breach of the employers duty to care for your health and safety.
You should state that if this does not stop then you will have no alternative but to resign and claim constructive dismissal.
Hopefully this will lead the employer to take action and to reassure you and for the bullying to stop
If it does not then you can consider whether you want to resign and to bring a claim.
If you have any further questions please do 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.
