We help People who have been the victims of Bullying and Harassment at work to resolve their issues legally enabling them to either return to a safer more pleasant working environment or to move on having achieved a fair resolution with their employer.
Too many people suffer in silence when experiencing bullying and harassment at work. It only makes sense, especially in times of financial crisis, that people suffering from workplace stress put up with it out of fear of losing their jobs and the comfort and security that goes along with them. But a hostile work environment does anything but actually provide comfort and security.
Another reason people put up with unacceptable work environments is that workplace bullying has sadly become the new norm. Victims of these behaviours are less likely to take the steps necessary to defend themselves when these situations seem to be acceptable to everyone else in the office. Those who don’t actively participate in bullying are only too willing to turn a blind eye, possibly relieved they’re not the ones being bullied. Or if someone in a position of authority is doing the bullying, employees quickly become accepting or even encouraging of bullying out of fear for their own jobs.
If your boss and colleagues don’t seem to be disgusted by these situations, please know that we are. Talk to us. We want to help lift the stress you’re carrying off your shoulders.
