Harassment and bullying

Violence or harassment in the workplace creates a poisonous environment for your employees. Workers who are the target of bullies may be anxious coming to work. Your business is impacted by the costs of violence-related injuries, disrupted work, poor morale, and decreased productivity.

Workplace harassment that is not addressed promptly and effectively impacts your relationship with your employees and can damage your reputation with your customers and clients. It can also affect your ability to attract new talent to your team.

Adult bullies may:

  • Berate people
  • Exclude co-workers
  • Make snide or inappropriate remarks
  • Take credit for other's work
  • Threaten
  • Unfairly criticize

A workplace health and safety program should include a bullying and harassment policy.
