Harassment

Share This

Harassment under the Equality Act 2010, is where A engages in unwanted conduct related to a protected characteristic (or of a sexual nature) that has the purpose or effect of violating B’s dignity or creating an intimidating, hostile, degrading, humiliating or offensive environment for B. Whether the conduct has that effect is judged subjectively from B’s viewpoint, subject to a test of reasonableness.

You can claim Harassment in the Employment Tribunal if you have evidence that  certain actions violate your dignity, or create an intimidating, hostile, degrading, humiliating or offensive environment for them.
