Workplace bullying is repeated, unreasonable behaviour directed at an employee or group of employees that creates a risk to health and safety. Workplace bullying comes in many forms. Bullying and harassment can lead to a toxic workplace culture.
Examples of behaviour, whether intentional or unintentional, that may be workplace bullying if they
are repeated, unreasonable and create a risk to health and safety include but are not limited to:
If the behaviour involves violence, for example physical assault or the threat of physical assault, it
should be reported to the police.
Workplace bullying is best to be dealt with by taking steps to prevent it before it creates a health and safety risk.
Workplace bullying is best managed by responding so soon as possible after being made aware of the situation.
