Australia has a strong ethic against workplace harassment, discrimination and bullying. Employers must not treat their employees unfairly and have a responsibility to protect their employees from antisocial workplace behaviour.
The area of workplace discrimination is detailed and one which requires a thorough understanding of how the rules may apply. What is determined as harassment, discrimination and bullying can vary, and the reasons behind the decision are dependent on the facts of the case.
It’s important that anyone who has either experienced antisocial workplace behaviour or suspects it may be lurking amidst their employees to seek professional advice immediately, before the matter escalates.
