Workplace bullying, unwanted conduct or bullying and harassment at work can be deeply distressing and can take a serious toll on the health and wellbeing of an employee. Our employment lawyers are highly skilled and experienced at dealing with workplace bullying claims and bringing claims for bullying and harassment to the Employment Tribunal.

Are you thinking of bringing an Employment Tribunal claim?

Employment tribunal claims are complex and time consuming processes. Our award-winning employment law solicitors have a proven track record in the Employment Tribunal. So if you think you may have a harassment claim or a discrimination claim against your employer, contact our employment law solicitors for early advice on your employment law rights and options.

Are you thinking of resigning from your employment?

You may be considering resigning because of bullying and harassment or even sexual harassment. If so, take advice from our employment law solicitors first. You may have a constructive dismissal claim against your employer, but it’s important that you take legal advice on the situation before resigning or taking legal action. Our experts will be able to advise you on whether you can claim compensation because of the harassment at work that you have suffered.

What is harassment?

Harassment at work is covered by the Equality Act. Some people mistakenly refer to the Harassment Act; but it’s the Equality Act that deals with harassment at work or harassment in the workplace. Harassment takes place where an employee is, because of a relevant protected characteristic, subjected to a hostile, degrading or offensive environment at work. The protected characteristics in question include (amongst others): belief sex sexual orientation disability age.

What is sexual harassment?

The legal definition of sexual harassment is where the harassment at work amounts to unwanted conduct related to something of a sexual nature. This could include unwelcome sexual advances.

What is bullying?

There is no legal definition of bullying. However, often bullying or harassment are coupled together for the purposes of showing unwanted behaviour at work. Therefore, whilst the law doesn’t allow for a specific standalone claim for bullying, often bullying at work forms part of a harassment claim.
