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.

In general, bullying is characterised as an ongoing campaign to deliberately intimidate, induce fear and cause distress. Often seen as a one-on-one interaction, it normally involves a triad of participants: perpetrators, targets and bystanders (witnesses).

In the workplace, bullying is repetitive and unreasonable behaviour that targets an employee or group of employees. It may include threats, humiliation, harassment, discrimination, violence and other forms of 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.

and productivity

Why do you need it?

as an individual

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

Your employer needs to be aware of their responsibilities to ensure your working environment or workplace culture is not sexually or racially hostile.

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

as a Company

You have a responsibility to make sure your employees, and the people who apply for a job with you, are treated fairly.

This responsibility is set out in federal and state anti-discrimination laws, as well as the Fair Work Act 2009. Together, they make certain types of workplace behaviour against the law.

As an employer you need to prevent discrimination, harassment or bullying from occurring in the workplace.
