Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, I’m Ben. It’s my pleasure to assist you today. I may also ask for some preliminary information to help me determine the legal position.
Please explain the reason for the claim in some more detail
Hello, I was wondering if you have had a chance to consider my query above please? I will need your response before I provide an accurate answer to your situation. Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you.
Without the requested information, I can only provide you with the following general response, which will hopefully still answer your query.
There is no standalone claim for bullying under UK law unfortunately. Therefore, to claim for bullying you have to claim one of the following: unfair dismissal (if you have been dismissed as part of the bullying), constructive dismissal (if you have been forced to resign because of the bullying), or discrimination (if you have been bullied due to a protected characteristic, such as gender, age, race, etc).
As to victimisation, they are correct that it only occurs if you have been discriminated to start with. However, if there has been no discrimination, there is no possibility for victimisation.
Hopefully, I have answered your query in a way that is simple and easy to understand. If anything remains unclear, I will be more than happy to clarify it for you. In the meantime, thank you once again for using our services.
