How to Effectively Deal With Workplace Bullying
It’s not something most people expect to happen, but workplace bullying does occur, and it can lead to a lot of frustration and emotional pain and suffering. If you’ve been repeatedly bullied by co-workers while trying to do your job, help is available, and it may even be possible for you to receive compensation because of what you’ve endured.
Bullying is something that can make life even more difficult for those who simply want to go to work to make a living and go home. It’s embarrassing, hurtful, and downright traumatizing. It could cause you to suffer from anxiety and depression, making it all the more difficult for you to even want to go to work in the first place.
You shouldn’t have to feel scared to go to work because you don’t know what is going to happen or who is going to treat you poorly when you get there. You should be able to look forward to earning a living and doing a job you love. We’re prepared to help you if you’ve been through this type of traumatic experience and would like justice.
There is a possibility your boss knew about the bullying and decided not to do anything about it or even participated with others when calling you names or talking badly about you. No matter how it all happened and who knew about it, you need to get professional advice and we’re here to offer that advice to you. You don’t have to file a claim if you don’t feel comfortable, but we’d like to go over your options with you to make you aware of what you can do after going through such a traumatic event.
If the person or people who’ve bullied you have caused a lot of mental and emotional anguish, you could potentially have a claim that is worth filing. It’s even more important to file a claim if you’ve reported the bullying and still had to experience it because nothing was done after you reached out for help from your employer.
Understanding Bullying in the Workplace
Many people get bullied at work and don’t even realize it’s something that shouldn’t be happening. The 2010 Equality Act covers a lot of this important information for those who feel like they may be discriminated on while they’re at work. If you’re getting bullied due to your religious beliefs, your race, or even your sexual preference, you’re being mistreated and have a right to want justice.
Co-workers and employers can bully in different ways. They may say rude and hurtful remarks, send out inconsiderate messages, or even get physical. If bullying is occurring, you’ll need to let your employer know. If things have taken a turn for the worse and someone has become violent with you at work, you should file a police report.
Common Forms Of Workplace Bullying:
Religious Beliefs: Some people are treated differently due to certain religious views, be it one of the major religions or another faith, in any case this is workplace bullying and is an unacceptable practice in the workplace
Personal Differences: Some people are different to others in ways in which can cause discrimination, it may be a subtle difference, it may be a form of impediment or differences in views or personalities. None of these are reasons for workplace discrimination and as such it is not acceptable to become victim to any form of victimization due to personal differences with other members of staff.
Personal Relationship Bullying: Sometimes on occasion people develop differences between each other within a working relationship which may lead to an ongoing case of bullying with repeated references being made to upset a member of staff.
Performance: It is true to say that different staff may perform at different levels of functioning but this should never become an excuse for bullying in the workplace or ongoing workplace harassment. It should be dealt with in a constructive manner conducive to solving the issue.
