Not more than a few decades ago, if an employee was bullied in the workplace, which happened a lot more often than it does now, there would be little he or she could do about it. These days however, thanks to the union movement and years of improvement in employment practices and law, bullying in the workplace is a lot less common. This is also thanks in no small part to the fact that any employee who is bullied in the workplace may be able to take personal injury action with the aid of a top no-win, no-fee solicitor.
That’s right, you read correctly. Personal injury action can be taken for psychological as well as physical injuries. People who can prove that they have suffered psychological injury after being bullied or discriminated against at work, may well be able to register workplace claims in Baslow for compensation. Depending on the precise nature of the personal damage done, you could be in line for a pay out of several thousand pounds.
Bullying at work and launching workplace claims in Baslow
Anyone intent on launching successful workplace claims in Baslow, after being bullied at work, will need to gather as much evidence as possible to support their claim. The more documentary evidence you have to back up your version of events, the better. Firstly, you’re going to need proof that you’ve suffered a psychological injury. This will not be a problem at all as long as you’ve sought medical attention for your condition. If you have not, your chances of launching a successful case will be limited.
If you can, try to persuade one of your colleagues to speak as a witness on your behalf. This may be difficult to achieve as it will be likely that the person you ask will not want to jeopardise their position with your employer, but it could make a big difference to the outcome of your case. You should also retain any solid evidence of bullying. If you’ve been sent bullying emails or work colleagues have made disparaging remarks about you on social media, provide copies to your solicitor in Baslow.
