As a result of their increasing use and accessibility, social networks provide the perfect platform for cyberbullying. And yet, many people who fall victim to cyberbullying don’t realise that it is actually a crime.
They also don’t realise that there are specific laws designed to protect victims of cyberbullying from distress and from actions being taken against them. As such, it is important everyone – whether at home on social media or at work – knows how to prevent cyberbullying, what to do if they (or their friend, families or colleagues) are targeted, and what support is available.
Furthermore, employers need to be made aware of their responsibilities when it comes to dealing with cases of harassment in the workplace.
