Harassment / Bullying in the Workplace

The Employment Equality Acts 1998 to 2011 specifically deal with harassment and sexual harassment in the workplace. The welfare of employees is not protected if they are harassed or bullied at work. Where employees suffer continual and unchecked bullying, a claim for constructive dismissal can be taken under the Unfair Dismissals Acts 1977 to 2007. The Safety Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005 requires employers to protect the welfare of employees and the Health and Safety Authority is the state agency with responsibility for the area of workplace bullying.
