Harassment or bullying in the work place covers a whole range of behaviour, from actual physical assault and unwelcome verbal banter, to intimidatory teasing and behaviour.
The effect can be to seriously undermine the victim’s confidence and wellbeing, and if not tackled promptly the consequences can be serious for all concerned.
There is a duty for Employers to ensure that harassment does not take place, and to show that they have taken all reasonable and practical steps to prevent the acts complained of. Failing to tackle this head on can give rise to a claim for damages against the business.
For the Employee, the starting point is to bring a complaint to the attention of the Employer – who will then need to follow a fair and reasonable process in dealing with the issues raised.
