Have you ever been bullied in your workplace?

Any form of bullying — from being deliberately left out all the way through to extreme acts of violence — can really hurt. That’s why a recent parliamentary inquiry found that bullying was a form of psychological violence. 

And thankfully, our government is doing something about this, finalising a code of practice for Australian workplaces: Preventing & Responding to Workplace Bullying

But employer groups are lobbying hard. Some have opposed the introduction of a code, whilst others want to water down their responsibilities to make the code as weak as possible. 

That’s why we need to stand together now and send a strong message to counter the lobbying by these employer groups.
