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. This course will help managers to recognise bullying and create an effective and robust bullying and harassment policy.
