Bullying and harassment are terms used to describe behaviour which the recipient finds unacceptable, offensive or upsetting.
The behaviour often creates an intimidating, hostile environment which has a negative impact on work and social life.
What is Harassment?
Harassment is behaviour which the recipient finds unacceptable, offensive or upsetting.
Anyone can suffer from harassment. You may encounter this from any other person including fellow students, housemates, neighbours, work colleagues, members of University staff or landlords.
A single incident or a number of incidents of unwelcome behaviour may constitute harassment.
Health, physical characteristics, personal beliefs, sexual orientation, gender and age are common harassment issues.
Harassment can be verbal or non-verbal.
