Bullying

What is bullying?

There is no legal definition of bullying but experts agree that bullying is conscious behaviour that is offensive, intimidating, malicious or insulting and happens repeatedly and persistently over a period of time.

Bullying could include:

  • Being called names
  • Deliberately being ignored or excluded
  • Constant criticism or ‘putting down’
  • Spreading rumours about you
  • Setting you up to fail
  • Aggressive behaviour – shouting, intimidation and threatening behaviour
  • Using a position of power to make you feel threatened or undermined
  • Making threats about job security or blocking your progress
