i have two main ideas, i want to do a video on either bullying in the work place or aggesstive gangs. bullying at work includes : (http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/Employment/ResolvingWorkplaceDisputes/DiscriminationAtWork/DG_10026670)

Bullying at work is when someone tries to intimidate another worker, often in front of colleagues. It is usually, though not always, done to someone in a less senior position. It is similar to harassment, which is where someone’s behaviour is offensive. For example, making sexual comments, or abusing someone’s race, religion or sexual orientation.

You cannot make a legal claim directly about bullying, but complaints can be made under laws covering discrimination and harassment. If you are forced to resign due to bullying you can make a constructive dismissal claim.

Examples of bullying behaviour

Bullying includes abuse, physical or verbal violence, humiliation and undermining someone’s confidence. You are probably being bullied if, for example, you are:

  • constantly picked on
  • humiliated in front of colleagues
  • regularly unfairly treated
  • physically or verbally abused
  • blamed for problems caused by others
  • always given too much to do, so that you regularly fail in your work
  • regularly threatened with the sack
  • unfairly passed over for promotion or denied training opportunities

Bullying can be face-to-face, in writing, over the phone or by fax or email.

This research has given me a couple of ideas, i could make an video about a woman being sexually harrassed andmade to all the “womans” jobs at work like washing up etc. i would make this using still images of the woman with recording of the men making comments and laughing.
