Bullying and harassment at work

How is harassment different from bullying?

Harassment is still bullying but relates to a personal characteristic, most often as a result of your race, sex, religion or sexual orientation.

Your employer has a duty to protect you under The Health and Safety at Work Act and so they are legally responsible for dealing with bullying and harassment in a timely & sensitive fashion.
