With the addition of bullying provisions in the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth), workplace bullying was finally acknowledged by the law. The Fair Work Commission was conferred a wide range of powers to deal with complaints about workplace bullying. Naturally, many employers took an interest in the legal ramifications of this burgeoning area of law. Aside from the legal risks, workplace bullying has the capacity to inflict great psychological harm upon its victims.
The second edition of Workplace Bullying explores, in greater depth, the psychological aspect of such bullying and its damaging effects. Workplace Bullying offers advice on how a toxic workplace environment can be prevented from forming. It provides a practical guide to victims of workplace bullying regarding how they can recover and build resilience, and an overview of new legal developments in this evolving area of law. This book is an invaluable tool for all lawyers, HR professionals, counsellors, social workers and psychologists working in the area.
