There is no place for bullying, harassment or discrimination

Bullying, harassment and discrimination within the workplace are unlawful and can have a serious impact on the health of employees. This can lead to adverse effects on productivity and morale. The result can be higher return to work premium costs for employers, increased employee turnover and lower profitability.

A critical part of providing a safe workplace is for an employer to provide appropriate anti-bullying, harassment and discrimination policies, training and leadership in the workplace. If there is a need for investigation of allegations made against an employee, then this will need careful management to ensure any resultant action can be justified on the evidence.
