So how do you know if you are a victim of bullying? And when do you do something about it?

“Harassment occurs when workplace bullying becomes a pattern of conduct, which worries or causes emotional distress in an individual,” said lawyer Francis Goh of Harry Elias Partnership LLP, who spoke on workplace bullying at a legal primer organised by NTUC’s Legal Services Department on 21 March.

He pointed out that victims often suffer in silence as they do not know their rights or where to seek help.

With The Protection from Harassment Act 2014 in place, Mr Goh said there is a likelihood of seeing more reported cases.

I think there will be an initial flurry of complaints or reports. Hence, the Act highlights a reality that is already on the ground and it provides an avenue for constructive action to be taken.
