Republic of Ireland Law Questions Answered by Experts
1. The first thing you should be aware of, is that under the Equal Status Act, you can sue your employer for this harassment as well as suing the person who is harassing you. So, you can obtain damages from your employer for this ongoing insidious harassment as well as sue your co-worker who is carrying out the harassment. So far as your co-worker is concerned, you can take out an injunction to prevent the harassment by them. The law recognises harassment as a tort or civil wrong. So, you can get money damages or an injunction against the person who is harassing you.
2. What you need to do here is to get yourself a solicitor and get the solicitor to formally write to your employer complaining about the harassment. Additionally, you should get the solicitor to write to the person or co-worker who is carrying out the campaign of harassment and inform them that you will take out an injunction against them if they persist in the campaign of harassment. Be aware that the law recognises both blatent and overt types of harassment. So, although the harassment here is insidious, you will get protection from the law for what is going on. YOu don't need to have any specific type of harassment, you merely need to show that it impinges upon you and is not within the normal bounds of human behaviour.
