Bullying at work is a common occurrence in the workplace and it is often unnoticed or not dealt with. Bullying can be directed at a person personally or it can relate to work activities.

Research shows that 80% of managers know that bullying is occurring in their workplace, yet few admitted being involved. Bullying involves negative behaviour being targeted at an individual or individuals, repeatedly and persistently over
time. Common forms include:

  • Being caught up in arguments or rude comments
  • Being ignored or excluded
  • Being given meaningless tasks or being overloaded with work
  • Having information withheld deliberately
  • Being made to feel stupid in public
  • Being the subject of gossip or belittling remarks or not being given credit where it is due

The impact of bullying and harassment are not to be underestimated. Common complaints of victims can include high levels of stress, poor health, a decrease in performance and repeated sickness absence. So what are the answers? Where does HR stand from a legal point of view in terms of dealing with bullying and stamping it out of your organisation’s culture.

  • Should you introduce a bullying policy?
  • Where does the Prevention of Harassment Act come into play?
  • When should you try mediation?
  • When is legal action the answer?

If you would like the answers to these questions and related issues on this negative and destructive subject, we invite you to come along to our free event and listen to and learn from our medical and legal experts on 5th Junehere at the Corporate Health offices in Slough from 8.45am to 11.00am.
