Bullying and harassment is behaviour that makes someone feel intimidated or offended and is subjective to each individual. Legally, certain forms of harassment are unlawful under the Equality Act 2010 legislation, and all businesses have a responsibility to prevent bullying and harassing behaviour.
We can assist with drafting the correct bullying and harassment policies to have in place and also our HR Consultants can assist your business with learning how to deal with, and manage any such issues that may arise. If a business fails to have the correct procedures for dealing with bullying and or harassment, it could be costly in terms of possible litigation but also in terms of poor employee relations, inefficiency and low morale.
Our experienced team can advise you on all aspect of this.
