Abstract [sv]

Chefer har enligt svensk lag ett särskilt ansvar att förebygga, uppmärksamma och hantera kränkande särbehandling på arbetsplatsen. Syftet med föreliggande studie var att undersöka hur chefer inom en offentlig förvaltning upplevde de krav som kommer med detta särskilda ansvar samt vilket stöd som cheferna upplevde sig behöva i sitt arbete mot kränkande särbehandling. För att undersöka detta genomfördes semistrukturerade intervjuer med nio chefer på vald förvaltning. Intervjuerna analyserades med en induktiv tematisk analys. Resultatet visade på att cheferna upplevde de krav som ställs på dem att arbeta med frågor som rör kränkande särbehandling som ett naturligt ansvar som medföljer i chefsrollen. Vidare upplevde cheferna en del utmaningar i sitt arbete mot kränkande särbehandling och de betonade betydelsen av kommunikation för ett välfungerande arbete. Det stöd som cheferna främst upplevde sig behöva i arbetet mot kränkande särbehandling var stöd från avdelningen för Human Resources.
