Helping military personnel to claim compensation if they have been bulliedUncategorized Monday, September 10th, 2012
Serving in the military is a very heroic job. Putting the needs of others before themselves, military personnel are frequently posted overseas to fight against violent forces or provide security in countries which do not have effective law enforcement. As with any job market, military bullying regularly happens and who it happens to is not just restricted to new recruits.
Soldiers who have been in the army for many years can also be bullied. Although the type of bullying can differ as both verbal and physical pain can be inflicted, any form of bullying can scar a soldier. When a soldier is bullied, this can affect their personal performance because they can no longer concentrate on their job. As soldiers are regularly posted to war-torn areas, the impact which bullying has on a soldier can put the lives of their squadron at risk because they are not able to properly assess dangerous situations.
Military bullying used to be ignored. However, times have changed and it is now unacceptable. When a soldier of any rank is bullied, Bolt Burdon Kemp can help.
