All employees have the right to work without bullying and harassment.

As an employer, it is your responsibility to ensure that there is no bullying or harassment in the workplace. Not only do you have a duty of care for your employees, but accusations of bullying or harassment can also be harmful to your business. 

With this in mind, it’s important that your business has a clear bullying and harassment policy in place, as well as a formal procedure for formally reporting grievances.

Our specialist employment law team can provide the legal support you need, ensuring you have the relevant policies and place and helping you deal with any claims or grievances quickly and fairly.   

Bullying and harassment are defined as behaviours that make someone feel intimidated, degraded, or humiliated. This can be carried out by one person or a group of people. It can be a one-off or regular, on-going event.

All employers should have a clear policy in place, outlining the behaviours that won’t be accepted in the workplace. This policy should be written in plain English and should be readily available to all employees. This can also be backed up with training on acceptable language and behaviour.

We can help you implement a robust bullying and harassment policy, covering:

  • The definition of bulling and harassment
  • Examples of bullying and harassment
  • The complaints procedure
  • Details of support that is available to employees
  • Your commitment to dealing with all complaints fairly and within a set time period.

Our skilled and experienced team of employment experts can also provide support and representation to help you resolve any bullying and harassment issues quickly. You’ve worked hard to build your business’ reputation – we’ll help you protect it.
