Employment is one of the most important relationships that we enter into in our lifetime. It is more than just money for work – most people obtain satisfaction and a lot of joy in the workplace. But this can be destroyed if you are bullied, harassed or discriminated against.
Bullying is where a person or group of people repeatedly acts unreasonably towards a worker, and this behaviour creates a risk to health and safety.
This behaviour can include victimisation, humiliation or intimidation, and some examples include behaving aggressively, teasing, pressuring someone to behave inappropriately, excluding someone from work-related events, or unreasonable work demands.
Discrimination involves adverse action against a worker or prospective worker because of their race, colour, sex, sexual preference, age, physical or mental disability, marital status, family or carer’s responsibilities, pregnancy, religion, political opinion, or national extraction or social origin.
Adverse action may involve dismissal, injury, altering the worker’s position to their detriment, discrimination, and several other grounds.
