Promoting Dignity at Work
HYLMAN believes that all employees should be able to work without fear of being harassed or distressed by their colleagues, customers or other contacts in the workplace:
Any employee who is distressed by events at work and believes that their dignity has been violated or they have suffered harassment should talk to their line manager. This will be addressed in confidence.
If it is not appropriate to speak to the line manager employees should speak to a member of the HR department.
The organisation will add promptly to investigate any allegations of unaccept able behaviour in the workplace.
The organisation will support employees in getting over any distress that has been caused.
Employees who harass colleagues, or engage in otherwise upsetting behaviour, could be subject to disciplinary action.
