Workplace bullying has been the subject of many headlines in the last 12 months, but it remains an insidious and often silent problem.
Bullying can include incidents of outright violence, verbal or written abuse, or manifest itself in more subtle ways such as social isolation, excessive workload and lack of support from colleagues and management. Victims often feel undermined and afraid to speak out. Bullying can cause both psychological and physical harm to its victims.
Adviceline Injury Lawyers has helped many workers successfully obtain compensation for the injuries they have suffered.
Victims may be entitled to medical expenses such as counselling or even weekly payments of compensation if they are unable to work by reason of the bullying. In serious cases, Adviceline Injury Lawyers has helped workers sue their employers in negligence for failing to provide a safe workplace.
