Bullying & Harassment: Key Risks

A failure to deal with bullying and harassment in the workplace is likely to negatively impact on morale and employee relations. In addition, there is a risk of claims. You may be liable under the Equality Act 2010 if you fail to protect your workers from harassment in the course of their employment. You could also face constructive unfair dismissal claims or claims under the health and safety legislation and the Protection from Harassment Act 1997. You could also be liable for harassment of your workers by third parties.
