It is essential that harassment and bullying in the workplace is taken with the most serious and assertiveness of attitudes, ensuring it is quickly nipped in the bud before any matter gets out of hand. Sufficient precautions to prevent such bullying and harassment must be put in place to ensure the responsibility on you as the employer is taken with the upmost of confidence and to ensure it is reiterated that it is not acceptable in the workplace at any given time.
In extreme cases of bullying that may go public, not only can this damage your business reputation immediately, dent morale amongst colleagues and can be extremely costly if it proceeds to an Employment Tribunal.
