If you’ve been injured at work or you’ve developed a work-related illness as a result of negligence on the part of your employer, you have the right to claim compensation. If you choose to make a claim and you return to work, you should be treated in the same way as every other employee. Bullying in the workplace should not be tolerated by any employee or condoned by any employer. If you’ve been the victim of workplace bullying after making a work accident claim, Accident Advice Helpline can help.
Can you claim for bullying in the workplace?
Your well-being at work is not limited to your physical health. Mental health is also very important. Many people today suffer from issues such as stress and depression as a result of the demands of their job or their working conditions. In some cases, stress can also be caused by bullying in the workplace. This may involve colleagues, senior members of staff or even your boss. If you’ve made a claim against your employer in the past, there are no grounds for bullying in the workplace, and if you’re being treated unfairly, you should seek advice. Nobody should fear going into work.
Every employer in the UK has a duty to comply with legal guidelines to prevent discrimination and ensure that all employees are treated fairly and equally. If you’re worried about workplace bullying or your employer or a colleague are making your life unbearable, don’t suffer in silence.
