That is the point I have been making, Champ.It really depends what is defined as bullying though. If someone being told that they need to up their game and do their job correctly and to a high standard is deemed as bullying, then we are fcked. Can you imagine - Labour stating that a department is not fit for purpose, then an employee sues a colleague for telling them their work is not of a good enough standard, gets sacked for bullying.
You really couldn't make this sht up.
I'm not claiming to know what happened, but from the media reports - its been insinuated that employee's didnt like Pritti's tough approach.
Since the ridiculous law came in that hate speech is anything that any individual takes offence with, we have been well and truly fucked.
So people can cover their tracks by playing the hate, bullying, sexist, racist, homophobic card at will - immediately putting the person/company they are aiming it at on the back foot.
A snowflake's paradise where the incompetent can never be told of their incompetencies.
For instance, if you sack someone for misconduct or whatever, the person you fire has every right to take you to court for unfair dismissal and receive free legal costs - while the former employer can't.
If he wins the case the former employer gets hit. If the former employee loses the case, the former employer cannot claim costs against him or her....and because they cannot get government help to defend their case, then it will costs them £20,000 to £40,000 in legal fees.
It is a one way street, where the former employer simply cannot win.
We live in a truly fucked up world.
