About Bullying and Harassment at work

Harassment at work can take many different forms, from being bullied to unwanted sexual approaches or being called racist or sexist names. The Labour Relations Commission has defined Workplace Bullying as

“repeated inappropriate behaviour, direct or indirect, whether verbal, physical or otherwise, conducted by one or more persons against another or others, at the place of work and/or in the course of employment, which could reasonably be regarded as undermining the individual’s right to dignity at work. An isolated incident of the behaviour described in this definition may be an affront to dignity at work but, as a once off incident, is not considered to be bullying.”

Examples of Bullying and Harassment may include:

  • spreading malicious rumours, gossip, or innuendo that is not true
  • excluding or isolating someone socially
  • intimidating a person

Effects of Bullying and Harassment may include:

  • Stress,
  • Anxiety,
  • Sleeplessness,
  • fatigue,
  • trauma.
