What is the purpose of the policy?
In line with our BBC Values we strive to offer an environment where everyone is treated
with dignity and respect. We do not tolerate bullying or harassment.
We have a duty of care to protect you so we make it our priority to support you if you
experience problems with bullying or harassment. If you have a problem with bullying or
harassment we encourage you to use the support available to try to resolve it as early as
possible, ideally in an informal way. We will investigate any complaint that you bring to
our attention in a fair, independent and confidential way and, after considering all the
facts, we will take prompt and appropriate action.
This Policy explains the support available and how you can informally or formally address
issues with bullying or harassment. The accompanying Guide to Dealing with Bullying
and Harassment (referred to as the Guide) offers links to external support and detailed
information on bullying and harassment using examples and case studies. It also gives
guidance on examples of acceptable and unacceptable behaviour.
Who does the policy apply to?
We expect everyone to familiarise themselves with and adhere to the principles of the
Guide to Dealing with Bullying and Harassment. In particular, you must behave
respectfully towards others and never act in a way that could be regarded as bullying or
harassment. A non-exhaustive list of examples of acceptable and unacceptable
behaviour is found in the Guide. Acts of bullying or harassment are regarded as a serious
disciplinary matter and could place your continued employment or engagement with the
BBC at risk.
These principles extend to everyone working for or with the BBC including freelancers
(contributors and presenters), sub-contractors, agency workers, those taking part in our
programmes, visitors and guests.
BBC employees are expected to comply with the full terms of the Bullying and
Harassment Policy and process.

Freelancers (PAYE or gross paid) who wish to make a complaint should contact their
manager or the Bullying and Harassment Helpline. . The same principles of fairness
and objectivity will be applied.
We will mirror the formal process set out in this Policy with flexibility, in exceptional
circumstance, to take into account the short term nature of some freelance engagements.
Sub-contractors and agency workers should send any complaint to their relevant local
manager. Visitors and guests should contact BBC Complaints.
This policy can be used if you experience bullying or harassment either at work or workrelated
events, for example BBC social functions or business trips.
Our approach
We will not victimise, unfairly treat or discipline you if you make a genuine informal or
formal bullying or harassment complaint.
We will respect and maintain your confidentiality. We will also remind anyone involved in
your complaint about their responsibilities to maintain confidentiality. As we have a duty
