Workplace bullying and harassment

Workplace bullying can affect the psychological and physical health of a person and is unlawful. It is defined in Australian law as repeated and unreasonable behaviour directed towards an employee or a group of employees that creates a risk to health and safety. 

A manager taking responsible action in a reasonable way, for example in directing and allocating work and providing feedback on staff members performance, is not workplace bullying.

The People, Talent and Culture Unit have created Recognising and Managing Workplace Bullying as a resource to help staff and managers to recognise and combat bullying in the workplace.

Respect. Now. Always.
