Being bullied at work?
Bullying and harassment is prevalent in many workplaces and your workplace should offer a straightforward and simple way to lodge a complaint and see that the bullying conduct is stamped out.
The reality is often anything but, and in many workplaces the complaint is met with a response from management that you are underperforming and that what is occurring is nothing more than ‘reasonable management action carried out in a reasonable manner.’ This can create further conflict which is not always easy to manage or address.
Generally, formal action to stop bullying and harassment seeks orders to prevent the bullying and harassment from continuing. There is often no monetary compensation available for a bullying and harassment claim.
Deciding to take formal action against your employer for bullying and harassment is a big step and there is often multiple avenues available to progress a complaint. SMB Workplace & Employment Law can assist you to assess your options and pursue your complaint.
