Compensation for Bullying and Harassment Claims
The Ministry of Defence (MOD) have a duty of care to people serving in the military, but sadly we know cases of bullying and harassment are still common within the British Armed Forces. It was reported in 2021 that almost two thirds of women serving in the military had experienced bullying, harassment or discrimination during their career.
Unfortunately, the processes in place for dealing with bullying and harassment in the Armed Forces often fail to bring justice for the people who’ve spoken up. A report revealed last year that 89% of Armed Forces personnel subjected to harassment or bullying didn’t make a complaint because they believed nothing would be done or it would negatively impact their career.
If you’ve experienced bullying or harassment while serving in the British Armed Forces, you shouldn’t have to suffer in silence. We could help you make a claim. Get in touch with our dedicated Military Claims Solicitors for advice.
What Is the Claims Process?
There are two main options for making a claim if you’ve experienced bullying or harassment during military service, these are:
- Making an Armed Forces Compensation Scheme claim
- Suing the MOD with a Civil Court claim
If you decide to make a claim through the Civil Court, we can support you at each step:
- Free Claims Assessment – one of our expert Military Claims Solicitors will speak to you about your claim and let you know if we can help.
- Investigation – you’ll be assigned a Solicitor who will support you throughout your claim. They will put together the details of your case and submit this to the MOD.
- Court Proceedings – if the MOD doesn’t settle your claim, we’ll represent you in court and work to get you the compensation and support you’re entitled to.
