Alternative title:

Mobbing — legal claims that a victim is entitled to

Subject and Keywords:

mobbing   legal regulations   workplace


Mobbing, as a legal and social phenomenon often occurring in workplaces, must be denounced, both in the legal regulations and in social non-acceptance. The aim of the paper is to present the legal claims which a worker, as a victim of mobbing, is entitled to make under civil and criminal law. In a civil action, through Art. 300 of the Labour Code, an employee who proves mobbing by his employer can claim both redress and compensation. The victim of mobbing can also claim compensation for the costs incurred relating to treatment, under Art. 444 § 1 of the Civil Code, in the case of bodily injury or health disorder. The sufferer may also seek compensation for the infringement of personal interests under Art. § 24 of the Civil Code. However, if serious mobbing has occurred in the workplace, the employer might also be held to criminal liability. He/she can bear the responsibility under Arts. 156 and 207 of the Penal Code.
