    Coping with workplace bullying after a claim

    It is a given that accidents at work occur in all positions, across all sectors. Yet we still see instances of employees coping with workplace bullying during and following a claim for compensation.

    This type of victimisation is wrong, and employers can be in breach on many workplace regulations by allowing or partaking in such behaviour. Coping with workplace bullying should not be an issue for any employee, regardless of whether they have made a claim or not.

    Coping with workplace bullying

    It is difficult enough dealing with the aftermath of an accident at work; however, if you do find yourself coping with workplace bullying after a claim, it is important to remain as calm as possible.

    Never rise to the bullying or be tempted into fighting back. Simply ignore what is being said or done. Keep a record of every instance where you find yourself coping with workplace bullying.

    Allow your emotions to calm before you report the incident, then arrange a meeting with your line manager and an HR representative. Ensure that information is factual, and push for the bullying to be investigated.

    In the case where your line manager is creating the issue, speak with HR regarding your organisation’’s whistle-blowing policy.

    Claiming compensation for accidents at work

    If you have been subject to bullying at work and this has caused you severe anxiety, depression or any other form of distress, you may be able to claim personal injury compensation. Mental health illnesses triggered by incidents at work are a form of occupational ailment.
