Bullying behaviour is not in itself a matter that you can take to an employment tribunal. To do this the bullying would need to be of discriminatory nature, such as on the grounds of race, sex, disability, religion or sexual orientation.
If you feel bullied at work there are a number of practical things that you are advised to do:
- Tell the person firmly, but not aggressively, that they should stop the behaviour because it makes you feel uncomfortable. If you cannot face the person(s) yourself, speak to someone in HR and ask them to intercede on your behalf.
- If things do not improve you should raise a formal complaint, in writing and with specific details.
- Keep a full diary of incidents – detailing dates, times, what occurred, and names of any witnesses. Keep copies of any relevant documentation.
