Many of our members have represented clients who have been sustained injury in the workplace, including psychological injury as a result of workplace bullying.
Workplace bullying has a profound impact on individuals, families, workplaces and communities all over Australia.
The Australian Lawyers Alliance provided a submission to the Standing Committee on Education and Employment’s Inquiry into Workplace Bullying in July 2012.
The Australian Lawyers Alliance recommended that, given the lack of a specific definition of bullying in the new legislation, it is imperative that employers and employees be informed of the content of these new laws and how this links to workplace bullying.
We submitted that one of the most significant issues in countering workplace bullying is structures in the workplace being sufficiently developed and neutral from the parties inflicting the bullying, and effectively implemented following incidences of bullying.
