Without them I would be nothing. This is their award as much as it is mine.”Prince Harry presented the #CompanionofHonour when he met @TheDesmondTutu today at the offices of @TutuLegacy pic.twitter.com/YigdlmHWmC — Kensington Palace (@KensingtonRoyal) November 30, 2015While at the foundation, the prince also learnt more about Tutu’s efforts in peace building, conflict resolution, development and human rights, as well as about the work of the foundation. In particular, he heard about its efforts to support disadvantaged young people to access the work place.According to Kensington Palace, the Order of the Companions of Honour was instituted in 1917 by King George V. “It is conferred on people for recognised services of national importance, for a pre-eminent and sustained contribution in the arts, science, medicine or government.”Previous recipients include painter Lucian Freud, Professor Stephen Hawking, naturalist Sir David Attenborough, painter David Hockney, historian Dr Eric Hobsbawm, and politicians Sir John Major and Lord Patten of Barnes.Later that day, Harry visited the Ottery Youth Centre, where troubled youngsters are rehabilitated. “The centre provides rehabilitative care and education to young boys between the ages of 12 and 18 years who more often than not come from broken homes,” Kensington Palace said.Children at the centre gave him a wood carving of his mother, the late Princess Diana.Prince Harry was given a wood carving created for him by the children at Ottery in their wood craft workshops pic.twitter.com/ZA2BSixETm — Kensington Palace (@KensingtonRoyal) November 30, 2015His last stop for the day was the Football for Hope Centre in Khayelitsha.

Precedent law has now been set – managers who ‘turn a blind eye’ to harassment and bullying may themselves face custodial sentences under the criminal law.Last year Sheffield Crown Court issued custodial sentences to employees of Bruce Transport Services following findings one of their fellow employees had been routinely bullied.The general manager of the company received the heaviest sentence of 17 months because, the Judge said, he was in a position of responsibility and could have stopped the harassment, but didn’t.As Marie Allen, a solicitor at Steeles law firm explains, criminal liability is just one of the potential problems for employers arising from bullying and harassment.A worker resigned as a result of being physically and verbally bullied by colleagues at work, which included racial abuse. He has brought complaints of race discrimination and unfair constructive dismissal. Are we liable? And what compensation could be awarded in respect of the alleged discrimination?An employer will also be ‘vicariously’ liable for wrongful acts done by his employees, in the course of their employment if either the act was authorised by the employer; or was closely connected with the performance of their duties.This would include bullying which amounts to harassment on grounds of sex, race, disability, sexual orientation or religion or belief. If, however, the employer can show that it took all reasonably practicable steps to prevent the bullying, it will not be liable. Unlike unfair dismissal awards, compensation for discrimination is unlimited and can include compensation for injury to feelings and aggravated damages. Unfair dismissal awards are currently capped at £63,100, including the compensatory and basic awards.An employer will be liable for unfair dismissal in such circumstances, where the employee establishes that the employers failure to take reasonable steps to prevent the bullying and harassment, amounts to a breach of the implied term of trust and confidence, and that the employee has resigned in response to that breach of contract.A worker has complained that he has been subjected to shouting and foul language from his manager and is threatening to resign. Our business is conducted in a stressful and demanding environment, where foul language is frequently used. Could he have a claim?Yes. Last year the High Court held that a manager who had embarked upon a deliberate course of conduct, including frequent use of foul and abusive language to the employee, had destroyed the relationship of trust and confidence between the employee and the employer.This was despite the fact that the employee had himself resorted to foul language on occasions. The Court held that he ‘nevertheless remained entitled to proper treatment in accordance with his contract.’What steps can we take to reduce the risk of any future liability arising from the bullying of staff by managers or colleagues?It is not sufficient for an employer to argue that there was nothing it could have done to prevent a course of bullying. Employers should ensure that they adopt and fully implement sound anti-bullying policies, and train their employees appropriately. The policy should include a clear statement that all employees have the right to be treated with dignity and that bullying at work will not be tolerated and that employees, who are subjected to such acts, have a right to complain about it. The policy should also clearly define what amounts to bullying and make it clear that breaches of the policy will be subject to the employer’s disciplinary procedure. Related posts:No related photos.
