Bullying, harassment or abuse in the workplace in Denbigh (or anywhere else here in the UK) is something that should never be tolerated. Laws are in place to protect employees against this sort of behaviour, and not matter what the reason is for this unacceptable type of treatment, the guilty party needs to be stopped. That responsibility lies with the employer. It could prevent an innocent injury victim having to make a Denbigh accident at work claim.
Why victims make a Denbigh accident at work claim for bullying, harassment or abuse
Generally, when someone mentions bullying, you tend to think of children in the playground, and harassment conjures up pictures of someone forcing themselves on others.
But these things also happen in the workplace every day, and if you are a victim of such abuse, you should tell your employer and get a stop put to it – unless of cause the guilty party is also your employer.
It is always wise to take a witness with you to meetings with your employer on bullying, so that they cannot deny what they have said afterwards. Remember, bullying, harassment and sexual or gender abuse, can come in many different forms, ageism, and racism just being two examples of why it can happen.
This type of treatment can cause a huge amount of stress and anxiety for the victim, and employers should be protecting staff from it as much as they can. If they don’t, it can lead to both physical and mental injuries. Anyone suffering from such injuries is legally entitled to make a Denbigh accident at work claim.
Psychological injuries are just as real as physical injuries, and as such, the victim is entitled to claim compensation for the suffering they have had to endure because of the way others have behaved towards them.
