Bullying & Harassment Employer Responsibilities

Bullying and harassment are significant workplace issues and while most employers have policies in place to prevent such behaviour, many people are too afraid to raise a complaint without fear of reprisal.

The recipients of these inappropriate behaviours are more likely to experience anxiety, stress and lowered confidence as well as increased absences and even resignations. By taking a zero-tolerance approach to all forms of bullying and harassment, employers can ensure their duty of care to ensure the health, safety and welfare of their staff is met and potential employment claims avoided. 

Sills & Betteridge LLP understand that bullying and harassment in the workplace can not only be detrimental to staff but also to your reputation as an employer, therefore dealing with such behaviour properly is important. If you require advice and assistance dealing with bullying and harassment within your company, please get in touch.
