Welcome to the one stop website provided by ex-forces personnel to help address any bully or bullying issues you may be experiencing or have experienced whilst serving in the Navy, Army or Royal Air Force.
Within the website you will find a comprehensive list of useful contacts as well as a straightforward easy to use set of direct links to websites of other well established organisations. This allows access to a vast amount of information and advice from a wide range of providers.
Our main aim at forces-helpline.com is to provide a 100% independent service for both ex-forces personnel and currently serving members of the Army, Navy and Royal Air Force.
Anything you tell us is in the strictest confidence.
But what is bullying at work?
Harassment can take the form of physical, verbal or non verbal conduct which is unwanted by the individual target. Conduct which makes the individual feel harassed is harassment even though that may not have been the intention of the harasser.
In certain circumstances, harassment can be unlawful and can result in legal proceedings being taken against the harasser and often the employer as well who will be vicariously liable for the actions of any employee who is acting in the course of his or her employment. Bullying is slightly different as it is intentional.
Each incident may not seem significant to the objective observer when taken in isolation however it is important to recognize that there is a cumulative effect and each incident is in effect building on the last.
Bullying can be defined as the persistent use of offensive behaviour which gradually undermines a person self esteem and confidence.
Whilst bullying does not include constructive criticism of behaviour or performance by line managers or supervisors upwards, it should be recognized that such criticism can often be used as a way to further undermine the confidence of a person who is already under the cumulative effect of harassment and that such poor performance may well be a direct result of that harassment.
