Everyone should feel able to be themselves at work. Bullying and harassment of any kind are not in anyone’s best interest and should not be tolerated in the workplace. Bullying and harassment can take many forms, but it ultimately comes down to whether you are made to feel uncomfortable as a result of someone’s actions.
Members of the Dignity and Respect Network advise staff who are feeling bullied or harassed at work and provide guidance on where they can access further support. Our new team of Dignity and Respect Network Members are currently undergoing training, more information about how to contact them will be available shortly. In the meantime if you have any questions, please email email@example.com.
A number of channels exist outside of the LGBT Staff Network through which you can seek support, including:
- the Dignity and Respect Network;
- your line manager;
- a senior member of staff;
- a trade union representative from UCU (academic staff) or UNISON (non-academic staff);
- Human Resources.
