Workplace Bullying – Significant Supreme Court decision (29 August 2017)

 

The Supreme Court’s decision in Ruffley v The Board of Management of St Anne’s School brings long awaited clarity to the law of bullying in the workplace.  The Supreme Court has reversed the controversial judgement of the 2016 High Court which had resulted in not only the largest ever award for a bullying claim, but also a widening of the definition of what constitutes workplace bullying.  The Judgement appears to limit the type of conduct that can be viewed as bullying.
