About this training workshop
This event provides delegates with valuable information about what constitutes unacceptable behaviour and bullying and harassment. We outline what the law says (in regards to the Equality Act) and the views of the Tribunals. We then look at the responsibilities you have as an employer and the implications for choosing not to address these issues. Workplace bullying is a serious problem in Britain’s workplaces. It is a source of considerable individual suffering and weakens the performance of organisations. Unacceptable behaviours, such as bullying and harassment or aggressive attitudes, can lead to increased levels of absence, staff turnover, and lower staff morale which can reduce productivity. The effects of unacceptable behaviours are harmful to all concerned and can have detrimental cost implications for organisations with the reputational risk being a real issue.
