As an employer, you’re responsible for preventing bullying and harassment in your workplace. And what’s more, you could end up in an employment tribunal if you don’t take this seriously ⚠
A bullying and harassment policy can help to set super high standards in your business, by making it crystal clear what behaviour you expect from your employees and what they can expect from you.
To save you time, and to protect your business – I’ve pulled together a policy template for you to give to your new or existing employees.

WHAT YOU’LL GET
In a nutshell, you'll get a top notch bullying & harassment policy template, which makes it super clear to your employees, that you take a zero-tolerance approach to bullying and harassment. And what’s more, it tells them what to do, should they need to make a complaint so you comply with your legal responsibilities.
Here's a bit more info:
✅ After purchase, a link to the template will be emailed to you instantly.
✅ You can easily personalise it, by adding your company logo.
✅ Should a question pop into your mind after purchase, you can contact me at any time.
✅ And if the law changes – as it sometimes does – you’ll get access to an updated version.
WHY YOU SHOULD GET THIS TEMPLATE
👉Most responsible employers like you, will want to do the right thing and create a positive working environment, where people are looked after and feel respected. This policy helps to reinforce that.
👉You can find yourself in hot water legally, if you don’t put the right things in place to prevent and stamp out bullying and harassment in your workplace.
👉In fact, GOV.UK tribunal statistics show that in 2018/19, there were 114 discrimination claims awarded compensation for: race, sex, disability, religion, sexual orientation, and age discrimination. The largest ever UK award for sex discrimination amounted to a whopping £1,762,130 in 2015/16. Oh, and there’s no cap on the fines compensation for discrimination claims.
MY TOP TIP
💡As the boss, always set a super example, by personally clamping down on any anti-discriminatory behaviours in your workplace. Even if it's just 'banter', and people are joining in, you won't know how people feel on the inside. If you tolerate it as the boss, you're essentially saying it's ok.
