What is workplace bullying?

Everybody has the right to go to work without being subjected to intimidating, threatening or humiliating behaviour. 

In fact, you employer has a legal duty of care to protect you from such behaviour.

While workplace bullying can have a devastating effect on victims, it has a very specific meaning under the law.

The law says that a worker if bullied if:

  • a person, or group of people, repeatedly act unreasonably towards them or a group of workers
  • the behaviour creates a risk to health and safety

Unreasonable behaviour includes victimising, humiliating, intimidating or threatening.
