Bullying – How To Deal With It As Someone Who Experiences It or As A Manager

Event Date: 
2 Sep 2019 - 10:00 to 16:00


Bullying in a work environment can cause tremendous emotional distress as well as severely impact on people’s capacity to carry out their role.  Employers have a duty of care to employees and there are a number of remedies you can pursue if you believe you are being bullied.  For managers it is important to ensure that staff are enabled to work in a supportive environment which maximises their ability to contribute.  Sometimes there is a blurred line between performance management and a belief by the staff member that they are being bullied.  This course will explore the employer’s duty of care, what constitutes bullying, what remedies are available to someone who is experiencing it and how managers can respond pro-actively.  It will be delivered by Barbara Martin, ICTU tutor.


Further sessions of this workshop will run 

10am - 4pm  Mon 4 Nov Belfast
