Bullying and Harrassment
You have the right not to be harassed in the work place. Harassment (a form of discrimination) is any unwanted physical, verbal or non-verbal conduct which has the purpose or effect of violating the recipient’s dignity or creating an intimidating, hostile, degrading, humiliating or offensive environment for them. This must be on the grounds of a protected characteristic such as sex or race, and may take the form of one single incident or a series of incidents over time.
Whilst the Employment Tribunal does not recognise a specific stand alone complaint of bullying, it usually forms part of other claims, such as discrimination (if the bullying is based on a protected characteristic), victimisation (if the bullying is based on a complaint made) or constructive dismissal (if the person being bullied feels they have no option but to resign in order for the bullying to stop).
As before, such claims are subject to strict time limits and you are advised to contact us as soon as possible after the incident in question takes place. We will then be able to advise you as to the next steps that you should take.
