Although there is no free-standing claim that can be brought at the Employment Tribunal for bullying, a claim for bullying may fall into a category for which the Employment Tribunal has jurisdiction to hear. It is possible that a claim for bullying could fall within one or more of the following categories:
- Constructive and unfair dismissal.
- Unlawful deduction from wages.
- Breach of contract.
- Discrimination on the ground of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation.
- Being subjected to detriment on the ground of making a protected disclosure.
- Being subjected to detriment in connection with being summoned for jury service.
