Policy to combat bullying and harassment at work

Summary

Estyn recognises that bullying and harassment can have a detrimental effect on the wellbeing of employees and on the efficiency of the organisation. We expect all those who work for us to behave and speak appropriately when dealing with others with whom they may come into contact during their work.

Bullying or harassment can be discriminatory and, in certain circumstances, unlawful. Estyn will not tolerate bullying or harassment of any kind and will continue to ensure that this behaviour does not take place in Estyn.

We aim to work closely with managers, staff and trade union representatives to promote a working environment that is free from hostility, bullying and harassment, where staff can contribute effectively to achieving business objectives and where they engage in open communication and constructive, formal and informal discussion of work-related problems with their colleagues and managers.
