Bullying and harassment

Bullying and harassment

Suffering from bullying or harassment in the workplace can be a devastating reality for many employees, who fear that complaining about it could make the problem worse, or even lead to them losing their job.

If you feel unsupported by your employer, taking advice early can help you not only to understand your rights but how the problem can be tackled without fear of recriminations or of losing your job.

Sherrards offers expert legal advice to employees facing bullying and harassment at work, as well as advising employees facing claims they were implicated in bullying or harassment of a colleague. We can offer you guidance and support to help you decide how to proceed; whether you make a complaint under the employer’s grievance procedure, initiate a “without prejudice” discussion for a negotiated exit or bring a claim before an employment tribunal and, if so, what the potential claim should be.
