Bullying & Harassment

Bullying can be described as behaviour that’s offensive, insulting, belittling, humiliating or aggressive and often includes abuses of power such as unwarranted criticism. Harassment is any conduct (including bullying) that affects the dignity of an employee or creates a hostile or degrading environment in the workplace.

Examples of bullying and harassment include ridiculing or demeaning someone, unfair treatment, exclusion, insulting words or behaviour, offensive jokes or banter, unwelcome sexual advances or threatening dismissal without foundation.

If you have suffered bullying or harassment on the grounds of age, disability, gender reassignment, sexual orientation, marriage/civil partnership, pregnancy/maternity, race, religion/belief or gender; or the behaviour has resulted in a recognised psychiatric condition, such as clinical depression or anxiety, then one of Lawmatch's recommended solicitors may be able to help you to bring a claim for compensation against your employers.
