    Claim for bullying at work


    Can you claim for bullying at work having caused your nervous breakdown?

    Bullying at work is sadly still a serious problem despite extensive legislation to outlaw such behaviour and managers receiving far more training than they ever did before. As lower management is put under pressure to cut costs, increase productivity and improve profitability of a department, they seem to have a tendency to treat employees in their care badly.

    This can have serious consequences for the person at the receiving end of a bully’s wrath. Sleepless nights and fearful waking hours will soon take their toll. In an economic downturn it is not easy to find another job, so you may be stuck with the bully, unless you can transfer to another department.

    Leaving your present employ may cause you financial hardship, if your current contract includes generous benefits like private health care, company pension and dividends for example that you would be unlikely to receive elsewhere.

    It is even worse when you work for a small company where you cannot transfer to another department or have an HR department you can complain to. If your boss is the owner of the company you have no choice but to either deal with the situation or move on to another employer. If your bully-boss finds out you’re planning to leave, he or she’ll be even worse. Your stress level rises with the feeling of being trapped in an downward spiral.

    Proving your case to claim for bullying at work

    Before you can claim compensation for your injuries you will have to follow a complex procedure that has more to do with employment law than personal injury claim legislation. If you have asked the guilty party to stop what they are doing or complained to an HR department but the bullying continues, you may have to claim unfair dismissal first before you can go on to make a claim.
