CReate a thriving
workplace culture

Bullying in the workplace is repetitive and unreasonable behaviour that targets an employee or group of employees.

Bullying is a persistent and intentional health-harming behaviour. It creates a hostile work, school or online environment and can affect every aspect of a target’s life.

Generally, bullies deliberately intimidate, induce fear, and cause distress as part of an ongoing campaign. A typical situation like this usually involves three people: the one who causes the problem, the person affected, and someone who sees it happen.

It may include threats, humiliation, harassment, discrimination, violence and other forms of bullying and victimisation. Moreover, this behaviour can be verbal or non-verbal.

Workplace bullying can lead to psychological and physical harm. Further, it can severely affect a company’s productivity, staff retention, employee wellbeing and business reputation.

A proactive approach
WHY is it important?

All workers deserve the best possible protection for their physical health, mental well-being, and safety away from an hostile work environment.

Having a plan helps reduce work disruptions and the costs linked to employee sickness, missed work days, and reduced productivity.

and productivity
Why do you need it?

It’s usually cheaper and easier to prevent problems before they happen than to fix them after they cause legal issues and harm to your reputation.

as an individual

You have the right to work in an environment free from bullying, harassment, discrimination and violence.

Your employer should know their duties to keep your work environment free from sexual or racial hostility.

They should also develop and implement targeted practices to address unsuitable workplace behaviour and deal effectively with any complaint.

as a Company

You are responsible for ensuring that your employees and job applicants are treated fairly.

Federal and state anti-discrimination laws, along with the Fair Work Act 2009, establish this responsibility. Various legislations make certain types of workplace behaviour against the law.

As an employer, you need to prevent harassment, discrimination and bullying at work.
