“Navigating the Minefields”
Harassment in the Workplace


“What legal options does an employee have if they feel that they are being bullied or harassed in the workplace? In years gone by, the answer would probably have been “not very many” but this situation is changing. There has been a groundswell of public attention in recent years to the effects and costs of bullying in the workplace, aided in part by some high profile cases. As a result, governments have started to devote greater resources to education about workplace bullying and to enforcement and also studying ways to address the issue.”
