Brexit: Reports of harassment
Following the EU referendum, hate crime reporting rates have increased across the UK.

It is possible that such incidents may occur in the workplace, so as an employer you are advised to be alert to complaints of incidents involving discriminatory acts or harassment.

You should address any incidents promptly through your usual disciplinary or grievance procedure; this will provide reassurance to employees and make clear that discriminatory or harassing behaviour is not tolerated in the workplace.

You may also consider reminding employees of their workplace discrimination and harassment policies.

Where tensions at work are higher than usual in the current political climate and the prolonged period of uncertainty, employers need to be alert to incidents related to political and philosophical beliefs as well.
