Bullying claims

Have you been bullied at work or have you suffered harassment or discrimination in the workplace? If so you may be able to claim for compensation.

Here at Recovery Assist, our personal injury solicitors are experts when it comes to seeking compensation for workplace bullying.

There is no legal definition of workplace bullying. However, it is widely accepted that bullying involves negative behaviour targeted at an individual, or individuals, repeatedly and persistently over time.

What is bullying?

Examples of bullying may include:

  • Ignoring or excluding you
  • Setting you unachievable tasks
  • Spreading malicious rumours or gossip about you
  • Treating you in a manner different to other employees

Can I claim?

Under the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974, an employer has a duty to ensure in so far as is reasonably practicable, the health, safety and welfare of its employees.

This legislation covers employees’ physical and mental health and imposes on employers a duty to assess the risks to health and safety that its employees are exposed to.

As such, employers should have in place appropriate preventative and protective measures to reduce the possibility of bullying occurring in the workplace.

For example, employers should aim to reduce the potential inter-personal conflict between colleagues as well as have in place an agreed grievance procedure, so that when an allegation of bullying has been made, a proper and thorough investigation should take place.

Employers may also consider training their employees on what bullying in the workplace consists of and the consequences that it can have to employees’ physical and mental well-being.

It is not a defence for an employer to state that they did not know that bullying was taking place or that they did not condone the accused employee’s actions.

So, if you have been a victim of bullying or harassment in the workplace or you have suffered discrimination at work, and it can be established that your employer knew or ought to have known about it, and has failed to take all reasonable steps to have prevented it, you may have a claim for compensation for any suffering you have sustained.

Call Recovery Assist today for free advice from one of our specialist personal injury solicitors, who will be only too happy to discuss compensation for workplace bullying.
