Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.
How long have you worked there for?
on what grounds were you bullied/harassed?
Any bullying on grounds such as gender, age, race, religion?
Thank you. The main question is what court claim will you be making. You cannot make a claim for bullying alone - in employment situations you have to resign or be dismissed in order to make a claim for constructive dismissal or unfair dismissal respectively. Unless there were discriminatory reasons, which you confirmed there aren’t, your only way of claiming for bullying is through one of these methods. So you will not run out of time as your employment has not yet terminated.
In terms of harassment, there is also a possibility to make a claim in the civil court for that, without there being a requirement to leave first. For that the time limit is 6 years from the date the alleged act of harassment occurred, so you will be in plenty of time to claim still.
