Some time ago, after a grievance at work, where collegues who were interviewed backed me up, reporting that my old boss is a bully and over-controlling, I was transferred to a different office and area to work.

Unfortunately, due to the long-term effect of my bullying, although reasonable adjustments were made, I found the job too much to cope with and failed my trial period.

Unbelievably, senior management have niow insisted I am placed under the same management who bullied me in the first place.

Something very similar happened to me once. I walked right out of that job into a better one.

Best of luck to you!

Having been bullied Im so sorry 5winner. Im sure u shouldnt have to work with this beeper again? In making u do so- could this not be a case for constructive dismissal??.... If you are in a union ( tho they are useless these days) engage with them. Or..Try ACAS? And... Ur local CAB might have an employment expert one day perweek u will need to make threats (lol) to find out when they are in.
Can u go to the Dr and get reduced hours if you can afford it it can take some pressure off. Ultimately get signed off see if u can tackle them when off and make plans to go.
I was ostracised by a little gang of female canines. It near killed me. To this day I cant be around circles of women.
Bullying is an idiotic word it sounds idiotic. Its incredibly serious. Dont underestimate it. U have every right to still feel like this. But truly know how weak the abuser is. Have u seem them with others, they grovel, flatter certain people then need some release. I think theyre vindictive control freaks. Only weak people do this. Their heads must hurt!
I feel for u. Please post how things are going.
