Deborah Casale, Principal Lawyer, Employment, Slater & Gordon (UK) LLP said:

“Bullying and harassment in the workplace can be devastating for victims, but people do not have to put up with it. Being harassed at work occurs in many different forms and the law can help to protect employees. At Slater and Gordon we know all-too-well the difficult bullying and harassment situations people can experience at work; by taking part in this seminar we hope we can help those and encourage those that are experiencing it to take action quickly.”

Suzie Hayman, Family Lives Trustee, Counsellor, Parenting Educator and Agony Aunt for Woman Magazine said:

“Bullying in all its forms not only affects individuals, it harms the whole family. It can be hard for people to recognise or acknowledge that what they are going through is not harmless office banter but workplace bullying. This webinar aims to encourage employers and employees to identify and raise awareness of inappropriate behaviour and actively support those who are bullied, rather than hide behind a wall of silence and look the other way when organisational abuse take place.”
