    Who seeks bullying at work compensation?

    Bullying at work compensation can be sought in situations which can include verbal and physical intimidation and cynical manipulation of power with the intention of destroying a worker’s morale or even bullying them out of their job altogether. Examples include:

    Verbal humiliation in front of other people, including derogatory references to a person’s physical or mental attributes, including racist or sexist comments.

    Overloading a worker with difficult tasks or impossible deadlines, or expecting them to carry out duties without the necessary equipment or machinery.

    Sexual harassment

    Ignoring or deliberately excluding a person from group activities.

    There are many other possibilities. Bullying at work is more common in macho business cultures, although it can happen anywhere. Harder to prove are instances of bullying where it is endemic in the business culture and where employees have been threatened with the sack or worse, should they be reckless enough to complain about bad work practices or conditions. Cases of such “whistle-blowing” in large public and private organisations regularly hit the headlines in the media.

    Would I get the sack?

    This is a tricky question to answer. Obviously, bullies in any walk of life don’t like being exposed. Bullies are often driven by their own low self-esteem. Pushing around a colleague apparently weaker, or a subordinate makes them feel better. Would you have the nerve to seek bullying at work compensation? Usually those who do have been driven to it, since their working conditions have become intolerable.  It’s difficult to continue to work in an environment if the people who caused the problem remain in post and often victims move on. However, this is a personal decision. Some firms are able to separate and relocate personnel which can also solve the problem.

    Take action

    Employers would do well to heed the signals that one or more bullies are riding roughshod over the workforce. Ignoring imminent claims for bullying at work compensation could get expensive, in terms of lost personnel or even a fine if the case goes to an industrial tribunal.
