Workplace Bullying is a known hazard that has the potential to adversely affect the health and safety of workers or others and managers, and the organisation must take all reasonable steps to prevent or respond if issues arise.
It is essential that employers do everything within their power to respond quickly to bullying complaints and investigate them where appropriate.
This may require an external investigator or legal advice if the complaint is serious enough - which makes it even more important to act swiftly. It's also vital that employers have robust policies in place to address bullying in the workplace, and that employees are trained effectively in these policies.
Given the rise in bullying via social media and other electronic communications, you also need to ensure that appropriate social media and electronic communications policies are implemented and enforced.
All bullying policies should encourage employees to come forward about instances of bullying, whether they're the target of the bullying or a witness. They should also outline the process through which a notification about bullying can be made.
