Everyone has the right to be treated decently at work, and it is no different in the military.

The law protects service men and women from bullying and harassment in the workplace.

Bolt Burdon Kemp’s military claims solicitors have acted on many claims involving:

  • Career fouling
  • Assaults in the workplace
  • Sexual harassment
  • Initiation rites and ‘beastings’

Our solicitors understand how hard it can be to report bullying and harassment in the Armed Forces. We can help at an early stage by providing advice on your service complaint and your legal rights.

It takes courage to complain, especially in the military, but you should not suffer in silence.

If you have suffered from bullying or harassment in the services then you should consider a claim for compensation. Get in touch with us today, we usually work on a no-win, no-fee basis. 

Time limits 

Bullying in the military is a complicated area of law because there are different ways to make a complaint or bring a claim, either in the County Court, the High Court or an Employment Tribunal. 

There are also strict time limits for bringing claims, so legal advice should be sought as soon as possible. If you wait until the service complaint process is finished, it could mean you are too late to bring a claim. 

If you have suffered from bullying while in the military, then contact us today to discuss making a claim. 

Significant settlement sum for reservist who suffered racial harassment

We acted for a former Sergeant in the Army Reserves who’d had a lengthy and successful Army career. Some of his colleagues and superiors ridiculed him over a long period of time over his mixed-race background. He developed PTSD as a result. We brought a civil claim under the Protection From Harassment Act, and secured a settlement sum that’ll now enable him to move on with his life.
