Bullying and harassment

Harassment on a variety of grounds (including gender, age, race and sexual orientation) is prohibited under the Employment Equality Acts. Bullying, meanwhile, is unlawful under Safety, Health and Welfare at Work legislation. Both bullying and harassment can give rise to constructive dismissal and personal injuries claims against employers.

All employers should have policies in place in relation to dignity at work or bullying and harassment. Those policies should be in line with current legislation and should be communicated to employees.

If you need help in developing or implementing a harassment policy, dealing with a complaint of bullying or harassment or defending a claim, we can help. After all, our Adrian Twomey wrote the first Irish book on this topic, advised the legislature on the matter and has handled numerous cases for employers.
