How to deal with a bully at work, and make an accident at work claim against them
One of the most frustrating things you might have to deal at work is bullying. Once you are out of school and in an adult environment, it can be infuriating to have to deal with someone who never really left the playground. That person might be determined to make your life a misery because of a personality clash.
Remember that they may still think that they are in school. Bullying and fighting within an office can have much more serious repercussions. Here are some ways in which you can deal with the situation as the victim.
- Speak to them directly. One of the things that most bullies bet on is that no one will be strong enough to stand up to them. If people are not happy to stand up to a bully, they will get worse and worse until they have complete control in the workplace. If you go to them directly and state that you are unhappy with their behaviour, this may cause them to back off from you at least.
- Go to management. This might not be the first thing that you want to do. However, if you are dealing with a bully, you may need to let management know what is happening. This will allow them to do something about it as soon as possible.
- Get proof. Try to keep proof of the bully’s behaviour to show to management. This will show them that you have evidence of the incidences . This is easiest if their bullying behaviour is often in the form of emails. However, you could also get witnesses and write down certain events with dates and times to back you up.
