Harassment & Bullying

What is harassment or bullying?

Many forms of behaviour can constitute harassment or bullying, but most significantly the behaviour is unwelcome by the recipient. The behaviour may be deliberate or just misplaced. It may be a course of action or just one event. It can range from violence or assault to less obvious actions such as ignoring someone at work. The following, although not an exhaustive list may all constitute behaviour at work that is harassment or bullying: • Physical: ranging from gestures or touching to assault or damage to property • Verbal: the use of offensive jokes, banter, gossip, mimicry, nicknames, shouting, persistent criticism, threats or patronising language • Written: the circulation of offensive notes, letters, emails • Display of offensive material: posters, graffiti, lewd pictures • Behaviour: including isolation, noncooperation at work, pranks, exclusion from social events or setting unachievable deadlines for work
