Bullying and harassment in the workplace

The UK's ''Protection from Harassment Act of 1997''

includes protection from bullying in the workplace. My

recent manager made it clear that she didn't like me.

Because she is non-confrontational, she sent nasty

emails and notes rather than discussing things

face-to-face. I complained on several occasions to

Human Resources. The first time I was told by the VP

of HR that she had a ''stone in her shoe for me'' and

that we should try to ''work it out.'' The second time

it was agreed that she was being unreasonable, but I

was told to ''ignore it.'' Last week I returned from

vacation to find my position eliminated. Do I have any

recourse under harassment laws even though the

situation is not clearly based on sex, race, etc.?

There was no issue of non-performance and I have been

terminated ''
