Harassment in the Workplace
HR practitioners need to be aware that their employees in Singapore are subject to the Protection of Harassment Act. This implies that employees who bully, stalk, annoy, harass or engage in other forms of anti-social behaviour in the workplace can be construed to have committed an offence under this act and could face punishment like fines or a prison sentence. And in other countries where such protections exist, the company could also be held liable if they were aware and did nothing if such behaviour has taken place and continues to do so.
