Workplace Bullying & Harassment Training
This Bullying and Harassment training course will explore the difference between bullying and harassment, the laws that protect workers from harassment, and the laws that make tackling bullying a statutory duty for employers.
Bullying in the workplace takes many forms. It may be covert and insidious or a one-off blatant incident. Either way, bullying and harassment are always unacceptable. The course will help managers to recognise bullying and create a robust policy.
