Harassment or Victimisation occurs when in the workplace someone treats an employee badly or subjects that employee to a detriment (i.e. having suffered a disadvantage of being placed in a worse position) after having complained about discrimination or helping a fellow employee who has been the victim of discrimination. The right not be victimised is wider and also covers employees who make claims for whistle blowing, raise health and safety issues, or who take time off work to accompany a fellow employee in a disciplinary or grievance procedure.
Harassment and Victimisation in the work place are unlawful and these could happen not only face to face, but also via emails and other forms of communication.
