What is bullying?

Examples of workplace bullying may include:

  • Being purposefully ignored or excluded you
  • Being purposefully set tasks that are unachievable
  • Having malicious rumours or gossip spread about you
  • Being treated in a manner that is different to other employees

Can I claim for Bullying In The Workplace?

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 negative impacts that it can have on 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.
