Managing workplace bullying, discrimination and harassment is increasingly complex, time-consuming and problematic for many businesses.
Not only is there a risk this behaviour will cause injury to your employees and the reputation of your business, but you may also be held vicariously liable for the damaging behaviour of your staff. Therefore, it is important employers are adequately supported when workplace bullying, discrimination and/or harassment occurs.
Thankfully Workplace Wizards are here to help. Our team are right with you, stopping employee bullying, discrimination or harassment issues going from bad to worse.
Workplace bullying, discrimination and harassment can happen in any workplace and to any employee.
Businesses must be able to identify the signs so that they can act quickly to stop damaging behaviour and deal with offenders.
In Australia, serious cases of these offences constitute criminal offences and are punishable by imprisonment.
It’s vital to identify what constitutes workplace bullying, discrimination and harassment – but due to the overuse and misuse of these terms, it’s also important to be clear what they are not.
Any act that makes an employee feel offended, humiliated or intimidated should be taken gravely seriously, and being firm about how these terms are defined will make it a lot easier to take disciplinary action.
