Workplace Bullying

Practical tips for employers and employees

Employers pay a high price when bullying occurs in their workplace. In a recent decision from the Employment Relations Authority, Corbett v UDP Shopfitting the employer, who took no part in the bullying, was found liable for the actions of the bully and fined $13,000 owing to their failure to investigate. Employers can be held responsible for their employees’ bullying behaviour and it is important to have practical systems in place to limit the employer’s exposure.
