Regulation of Mobbing in Bosnia and Herzegovina in the Context of the Law on Prohibition of Discrimination

Fight against discrimination and mobbing has resulted in the adoption of specific legislation in almost all European countries in recent decades. However, the complex problem of mobbing is insufficiently regulated in BiH legislation, not only because of theoretically unfounded regulatory approach based on complete equalisation of discrimination and harassment at work, but also because of a number of normative gaps in the current legal framework.

By analyzing the legal framework for the protection of mobbing in BiH, using legal solutions and practices in Serbia, Mario Reljanović, associate of Analitika, points out the necessity to adopt a special law in this area in BiH which would completely separate legal regime of protection of mobbing from the protection against discrimination, and predict all the necessary elements to combat mobbing.
