Bullying in the workplace is a common thing and can be due to a range of motives such as being humiliated, intimidated or offensive behaviour.

This means if you have been discriminated or received bullying in the workplace for any reason such as, sex, age, ethnic background, religious beliefs or a disability, the law has been broken. If you have been a victim of bullying in the workplace and been at the tail end of at least two very serious acts (that the individual could go to prison for), will come under the Protection From Harassment Act 1997. You must be able to provide a strong link between your work and the bullying in the workplace that you have received and you will have up to six years to make a court claim.
