Workplace bullying occurs when a person or group of people repeatedly act unreasonably towards a person or a group of workers, creating a risk to health and safety. Examples of bullying include behaving aggressively, teasing or practical jokes, pressuring someone to behave inappropriately, excluding someone from work-related events and unreasonable work demands.
If you are still employed, you may be able to apply to the Fair Work Commission for an order to stop bullying. Other approaches include mediation at the Australian Human Rights Commission. To find the best path for you, please call us on (03) 9583 6263 to make an appointment
