If you are experiencing bullying or being harassed at work, you will likely feel stressed, upset and frustrated.
You may be concerned about your career progression, working relationships and reputation. We can help you to take a stand through a grievance process or by making a claim in an employment tribunal.
Bullying is intimidating, offensive or unwelcome behaviour. It can take various forms, including:
● unkind or undermining comments● circulating malicious rumours● unfair treatment
This behaviour does not have to take place in person. It could be over email, via letters or phone calls, and can be in relation to one incident or many.
If the bullying treatment is related to one of the protected characteristics outlined in the Equality Act 2010, such as a disability, it could amount to harassment if it also:
● violated your dignity● created a hostile environment for you

Your employer’s responsibility
Your employer is responsible for stopping bullying and harassment in the workplace. There should be policies in place to protect you. If you have made a complaint to your employer about bullying or harassment, it should be investigated swiftly and without bias.
What can I do if my employer fails to protect me from bullying and harassment?
If your employer is not stopping you from being bullied or harassed, or if you are unhappy with your employer’s response to an informal complaint you have made, you can use your employer’s grievance procedure to issue a formal complaint. A solicitor can help you negotiate the process and reach a resolution, including through a settlement agreement.
If the grievance procedure does not resolve the situation, you may be able to take legal action at an employment tribunal and seek compensation. A lawyer can advise you on your claim and represent you throughout.
You are entitled to work without bullying or harassment. We can empower you to act.
