In the past, the issue of workplace bullying was often examined from a psychological perspective but there was little consideration of the legal implications. This changed dramatically in 2013 with the advent of the bullying provisions in the Fair Work Act 2009 as well as the creation of the power for the Fair Work Commission to deal with workplace bullying complaints.
This essential and concise guide explores both the psychology of workplace bullying as well as the legal environment in which it occurs. The authors define what is workplace bullying is while examining the complexity of factors which contribute to such behaviour and the conditions that can lead to a toxic work environment. Offering an overview of the risks and liabilities (legal and non-legal) involved, practical advice on how to deal with such situations and an overview of general risk management through grievance procedures, this book is an essential tool for all lawyers, HR professionals and professionals who work in this area.
