Harassment and Bullying
According to the law, harassment is defined as “unwanted conduct related to a relevant protected characteristic, which has the purpose or effect of violating an individual’s dignity or creating an intimidating, hostile, degrading, humiliating or offensive environment for that individual”.
Common types of harassment and bullying examples are:
- Deliberate exclusion
- Unwelcome sexual advances
- Misuse of power or position
- Spreading of rumours
- Deliberately preventing a promotion
A person’s workplace is a common setting for harassment to take place and can occur between an employee or a group of employees. All members of staff should be aware of and trained on the company’s harassment policy.
