The Criminal Justice and Public Order Act made intentional harassment a criminal offence.
The Protection from Harassment Act made it a criminal offence to pursue conduct that leads to harassment, or fear that violence will be used. If convicted, someone can be sentenced to up to six months in prison, or get a fine of up to £5000.
The Equality Act ensures the workplace is a fair environment for all employees, while respecting the protected characteristics of each individual.
The Health & Safety at Work Act ensures that employers are responsible for the health, safety and welfare of all employees while they’re at work.
Every workplace should be a safe environment, free from bullying and harassment, where people are happy and able to work at their best.
However, according to YouGov, almost a third of all workers have claimed that they’ve experienced bullying at work which has adversely affected their performance. Bullying creates a negative working environment, decreasing productivity whilst increasing staff turnover; and harassment, which is an offence, leads to criminal charges, fines, and lost reputation. You need to make sure that ALL staff are able to spot the signs and know what to do to stamp it out. This course on Bullying & Harassment not only helps people understand, identify, and tackle the problem of bullying and harassment, but also gives them to tools to prevent it from occurring in the first place.
