TIGA, the trade association representing the UK video games industry, has published a Bullying and Harassment policy for games businesses.
Produced in partnership with law firm Weightmans LLP, the document offers a template bullying and harassment policy for games businesses. TIGA wants the UK to be the best place in the world to develop video games, which is why it is important to ensure that all working environments are free from all forms of bullying and harassment.
The document offers a range of policies that can be adopted by games businesses. Its guidance relates to harassment and bullying, formal complaints, internal investigations, appeals processes, and disciplinary action.
