Workplace Harassment Lawyers
Workplace Bullying & Harassment
Attitudes to what is acceptable treatment from employers and work colleagues have evolved in recent years and there have also been changes in the law to reflect this. If you are being picked on, isolated or intimidated at work you may be the victim of bullying, which is a serious issue for you personally and, if proven, for your employer. If the bullying or harassment is because of sex, sexual orientation, age, disability, religion or belief, race, marital or civil partnership status, pregnancy or maternity or gender re-assignment you may have a claim for unlawful discrimination.
How to raise concerns in the workplace
You can raise your concerns with your employer informally or via a formal grievance. We can help you in raising a grievance with your employer, particularly if your company does not have a formal grievance procedure or if the dispute is especially serious.
If the issue continues or if you have already left your job because of the bullying, then our workplace harassment lawyers can advise you on your employment rights.
Constructive Unfair dismissal
If your employer’s treatment of you is so poor that your position becomes untenable, you may have a claim for constructive unfair dismissal. Such claims depend on your having resigned directly in response to the treatment without delay, and there are strict deadlines by which you must notify your claim to ACAS [link to our page]. So, it’s important to seek expert advice promptly. See more information on this here [link to our page]
We can help you with all aspects of these claims, helping you to understand the merits of your particular case, the process of making a claim, the likely award you could receive at tribunal, settlement of your claims and if necessary, in representing you through the subsequent tribunal proceedings.
