We all have heard a lot on the news about the economic impact of the pandemic and how many businesses have had to close down for good as they have not been able to survive. But there have also been many people who have been stuck in jobs which they are unhappy in and are experiencing bullying but are too fearful to leave in case they cannot get another job.
Bullying in the workplace has a huge negative impact on your mental health and can cause you to feel stressed, upset, depressed and lose confidence. Some examples of workplace bullying are having false rumours spread about you, being excluded from social events by other colleagues, the manager giving you more work, or the more unpleasant tasks to do or putting you down when in meetings.
If you are being bullied at work and want to quit your job, you may well be able to make a Constructive Dismissal Claim. This is where you have felt you have had to quit due to how you were treated at work. If you do go ahead with this it is a good idea to seek legal advice, contact Employment law friend or someone who has experience with these sorts of cases.
Ultimately it is up to you, but you should not feel dread at going into work and bullying in the workplace is something that nobody should have to tolerate.
