Recording bullying, harassment and discrimination at work

We want to monitor all allegations of workplace bullying in the City of Edinburgh Council. All reps should use Unite’s form for recording instances of harassment, discrimination and bullying (HDB).

Download the HDB1 form

If any member believes they are experiencing discrimination, bullying or harassment in the work place, reps should have them fill in the HDB1 form and send it to Amanda Cunningham, Equalities Officer. This will help

  • the member’s case, as they will have a timeline of instances if they raise a grievance
  • us to identify areas where bullying is common.

It is helpful to refer to the Council’s policy on the avoidance of bullying and harassment at work in bullying cases. Find Council policies at

Download the HBD1 form, and other useful resources for reps, in the The REPository.

For more information of harassment, discrimination and bullying cases contact the branch equalities officer Amanda Cunningham.
