In any bullying and harassment situation it is the employer who has the target circles painted on their back as we have seen recently with a number of high profile cases.
While there might be some repercussions on the individual, it is the employer who has to prove that they did everything reasonable to prevent the behaviors and have appropriate systems in place to pick up and deal with issues as they arise.
It is important that employers understand what actually constitutes bullying and harassment and how it can be difficult to detect.
Employers also need to know what they must do to minimize their risk.
Please join us on Tuesday 7 June at 6:00pm as we provide an overview of employer risk and obligations in respect to bullying and harassment in the workplace.
Our presenter will be Michael Schmidt from Hunter Employee Relations.
