What can I do if my boss is bullying me?
No employee should be bullied or feel threatened or vulnerable in their workplace. If you think you have a valid case for work injury compensation and you wish to make a claim, you have the right to do this and you should not be deterred or blackmailed by your employer. All work incidents should be reported to the owner, manager or supervisor and they should take the necessary health and safety steps to ensure that a similar accident doesn’t occur in the future. In the case of negligence, the employee has a right to claim compensation when the injury or accident was not their fault.
Bullying in the workplace is illegal under the Health and Safety Act at Work 1974. If you are being bullied at work, you should approach the person who is bullying you directly and discuss the situation; it’s also a good idea to talk to colleagues. If this doesn’t have any positive impact, you could seek help from a union if you are a member or make a formal complaint through your company’s complaints process. You can also seek advice from the Citizen’s Advice Bureau.
