Harassment Policy and Procedure

Human Resources Performance & Discipline Region: | Reference: DPP01

This policy governs the interactions between employees and when complaints from employees may amount to bullying or harassment. If there is a potential bullying or harassment complaint, this policy also sets out the process to follow in dealing with this complaint. This will be applicable across all employees and all sectors from top to bottom of an organisation. The implications for an employer for failure to protect staff adequately from bullying and harassment can be threefold: breach of the Equality Act, breach of the Protection from Harassment Act, and breach of Health and Safety legislation.

The policy has been amended to include specific reference to the Human Rights Act, in particular Article 8 where there is a crossover between this and the Equality Act. The procedure section has been updated to ensure clarity and a new definition of aggrieved employee has been inserted. The references have been updated and additional underpinning knowledge from the Equality and Human Right
