Harassment at the workplace – the “reasonable person” standard in judicature

We would like to recommend another article from our series “Harassment at work”, which you may read in the Rzeczpospolita daily newspaper. This time, out legal counsel in training, Michał Bering, analyses the judicature of the Supreme Court that states that not every behaviour that is subjectively perceived as harassment by the worker actually meets the prerequisites for harassment provided in Art. 94 [3] § 2 of the Labour Code. Our lawyer explained, among others, the “reasonable person” standard that is used to determine whether harassment has occurred. He also commented on the possibility to claim compensation for health impairment caused by abuse at work and on the obligation to prove that harassment at work actually contributed to such health impairment.
