Bullying and Behavioural Conflict at Work

Lizzie Barmes

Oxford University Press

This chapter shows how the primary research in this study fills out the claim that law and legal process simultaneously challenge and support established power relations, structures, and ways of being. It isolates where the findings and analysis may have purchase to explain other legal subjects and identifies future research agendas. It theorizes more specifically about the impact and meaning of individual labour and equality rights in the UK, demonstrating the salience of the legal shift to an individualized framing of working life and how ideological struggle over individualism is bound up with this. It concludes with various suggestions for recasting individual entitlements at work, as well as of the use made of existing law, to stimulate the expression and reconciliation of different points of view in the implementation and enforcement of individual rights across the range of organizations.

Keywords:   individual rights, workplace behaviour, individualism, individualization, collective duality, contradiction, work, legal influence, socio-legal
