How to complain about being bullied at work, and when you can claim accident at work compensation from your bully
If you feel that you are being bullied at work, you need to tell someone as soon as possible in order to get the situation resolved. There is no point in you holding onto the situation and hoping that it resolves itself, as this is unlikely to happen, and if you don’t tell anyone and have something done about it, you may find that you are not the only person that becomes a victim to this person.
Whether the person that is bullying you is a colleague or your employer, you need to do something, and fast, before the situation gets any worse and your job becomes impossible.
- Speak to the bully. Sometimes people may bully you and not even realise that they are doing it. In fact, some people’s natural way of dealing with people is to be confrontational and loud. In this case they don’t actually have a problem with you, it is just their way of talking, and they should change this with you as soon as they realise that it is upsetting.
- Write down instances. When you do approach someone about any bullying that you are experiencing, it is more than likely that they will ask for examples to help them to build up your case. You should write down some specific examples with dates and times so that you have this information to hand as and when you need it.
- Talk to your boss. The last thing any employer wants in their business place is conflict or bullying. It leads to a bad atmosphere, high staff turnover and makes people generally miserable. If you report the situation to your employer as soon as you can, they will do all that is in their power to resolve the situation as soon as possible.
