It is important to remember that harassment is also a criminal offence and can lead to imprisonment and/or a fine.
The act of harassment involves a person engaging in a course of conduct which amounts to the harassment of another. Harassing a person includes both alarming the person and/or causing the person distress. Section 1 of the Protection from Harassment Act 1997 prohibits the harassment of another.
