Workplace harassment violates your dignity and creates a degrading, humiliating or offensive environment for you. Examples of workplace harassment include verbal harassment, derogatory comments and written harassment.
You need evidence to prove your workplace harassment case. If you experience harassment, you should document everything. If a coworker or employer makes an offensive remark to you, then you should write down what was said, when and if anyone was there at the time.
Firstly you should gather evidence of workplace bullying. Read up on your employer’s policy and how they deal with it internally. Next, get advice from someone such as a colleague, trade union representative, or manager. You should also try to resolve the issue informally.
Firstly report any bullying in the workplace to your manager. Your employer’s policy should also outline its guidelines on bullying.
We start by establishing whether or not you have a claim.
Then, if you do and you want to pursue it, we’ll help guide you through the complex process of making that claim.
That said, you only have a limited time to lodge your complaint to the WRC or Labour Court, so act fast.
