Workplace Bullying in UK Law

Leading Cases
  • Dowson (Bruce) & others v The Chief Constable of Northumbria Police
    • Queen's Bench Division
    • 20 Octubre 2010

    This interaction of ss.2(1) and 3(1) of the Act and the fact that the same actions may give rise to both criminal and civil liability has been further considered in later cases in the Court of Appeal (Civil Division). These cases provide a warning against confining civil claims only to those cases where a criminal case would succeed.

  • R Justice for Health Ltd v The Secretary of State for Health The NHS Confederation and Another (Interested Parties)
    • Queen's Bench Division (Administrative Court)
    • 28 Septiembre 2016

    A law or policy should be sufficiently clear to enable those affected by it to regulate their conduct i.e. to avoid being misled. Such a law or policy should also be sufficiently clear so as to obviate the risk that a public authority can act in an arbitrary way which interferes with fundamental rights of an individual.
