Bullying, harassment and dignity at work


Dignity at work is paramount. Any incident of bullying and harassment should be reported through your line manager, to any of the contacts provided by HR below, or directly to me. It will be dealt with sensitively and with resolve.”

- Professor David Leadley, Head of Physics Department

We aim to treat all staff fairly and with dignity. The work place should be free of bullying and harassment of any kind. Annual surveys show that we are doing very well in this respect. Nevertheless we are not complacent, the Department takes such matters very seriously and even one case is unacceptable.

We are committed to eliminating bullying and harassment at work. We want to know about any issue that arises and we will do our best to resolve it.

Please report any issues. Speak with whomever you feel comfortable: You can approach your supervisor or cluster head, or speak to the Senior Administrator or approach the Head of Department directly. Staff who wish to speak to someone in confidence outside of the department can find information and a list of contacts here:

Alternatively, staff may contact the department’s HR Link Officer directly. See here for details of the department's current HR contacts.

We are used to dealing with sensitive matters and respecting confidences. We have a wide variety of ways to resolve issues.
