Bullying at Work - Solicitors Compensation Claim

Solicitors Helpline 0345 515 0974

 

Bullying at work is now recognised as a major problem both from the point of view of the employers and the bullied employees affected. A bully can have a significant effect on the physical and mental health of the workforce and in many circumstances; the effect of bullying at work can remain with the victim for a substantial period of time. However, in addition to the effects on individual workers, it can have a serious impact on the efficiency of organisations where it is estimated that 40 million working days are lost at a serious cost to employers and victims are highly likely to suffer stress related illnesses, which in turn will lead to significant levels of absence from the workplace, hence affecting the productivity of businesses. It can also have a serious effect on the moral of the workforce and if employers fail to deal with the problems caused by a bully, then the culture of their organisation will also suffer. Employees who are the victims of this type of behaviour often instinct a bullying at work solicitor which may result in considerable expenditure by the employer in taking legal advice and subsequently paying out unlimited damages awards.

Bullying Legislation

As things stand at present, there is no specific legislation in the UK that a bullying at work solicitor can rely on which provides rights to employees who are being or have been bullied at work. This does not mean that they have no legal protection against a bully, but it does mean that they will have to look to other employment law related legislation and/or common law principles, if they wish to seek redress.
