States workplace bullies
‘getting away with it’
Nick Corbel, from the Unite union, said that workers fear ‘serious repercussions’ from their colleagues and other senior staff if they allege they are being bullied or harassed.
And he claims that others are being deterred because those who are called in to investigate the complaints are themselves States workers who may know the accused.
Mr Corbel spoke to the JEP after the paper submitted a request under the Freedom of Information code for figures on bullying and harassment in the States.
