From 1 January 2014, under changes made to the Fair Work Act 2009, employees who believe they have been bullied in the workplace will be able to make a complaint to the Fair Work Commission and request that the Fair Work Commission make orders that the bullying stop.
While the new laws are designed to give employees an effective avenue to have bullying issues addressed quickly, the amendments to the Fair Work Act 2009 are a significant change in legislative approach to addressing bullying and this has the capacity to cause real disruption to the workplace if employers are not properly prepared and complaints not adequately managed.
The process will also expose employers to potential liability under Work Health and Safety laws.
In this presentation, McCullough Robertson Employment Relations and Safety Partner Tim Longwill delivers a practical and informative seminar examining employer obligations under the new laws and steps you should take to plan for their commencement to minimise the impact on the workplace and workforce.
