Victimisation takes place when an employee suffers detriment or unfair treatment because he or she has performed a ‘protected act’, for example making a complaint about breaches of discriminatory legislation or whistleblowing. Dates are very important as is supporting evidence. The main issues are:
- When was the protected act?
- What form did it take? – email, meeting, text or face to face
- What was said? – how does this relate to discrimination or whistleblowing
- Can I prove that the detriments were because of the protected acts?
