To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what estimate he has made of the number of cases of bullying and harassment that have been recorded against managers in his Department in each of the last five years.
15 May 2019
The total number of recorded grievances alleging bullying, harassment or dis-crimination (BHD) raised by Home Office employees in each of the last five years is as follows:
|Year||Number of Grievances|
These are total figures which do not differentiate between BHD allegations brought against managers acting a management capacity and those brought against other employees. Establishing the figures relating specifically to managers could only be done at disproportionate cost. Not all grievances will be upheld following investigation.
The Home Office makes it clear to employees that bullying, harassment and discrimination are unacceptable behaviours that will not be tolerated. A range of support is available to any employee who has been affected by BHD.
