Behaviour seems intimidating some such behaviour Analchatten

Most people would not deliberately seek to cause upset or distress.

Part 11 of the Criminal Justice Act 2006 provides for proceedings to be taken in Ireland against adults who engage in anti-social behaviour.

Anti-social behaviour by children is addressed in a separate section of the Act and the rules regarding anti-social behaviour orders for children are different to the anti-social behaviour orders (ASBOs) for adults.

For example ‘teasing’ a colleague about their sexuality or religion can create a humiliating or offensive environment for that person that is likely to be considered harassment.

Each of us has a responsibility to acknowledge that views, opinions held by others and decisions made by managers and supervisors may not always coincide with our own; such differences in themselves do not constitute harassment.

All members of the University should consider their own behaviour and the impact that this can have on others.

It frequently involves someone in a position of authority bullying someone in a lesser position, but bullying of people in a more senior position by people in a lesser position and between people in an equal position does occur. Unintentional or misinterpreted behaviour may cause feelings of harassment.

Differences in attitude, background or culture can mean that what is perceived as harassment by one person may not seem so to another.

Similarly, if large numbers of people are continuously gathering outside or near your property, or indeed your local supermarket, and their behaviour is causing you alarm, distress, fear or intimidation then this behaviour may amount to anti-social behaviour.
