HR Roundtable - NEW Fair Work Anti-Bullying Measures - 4 March

From 1 January 2014, if a worker reasonably believes he or she has been bullied at work, they can apply directly to the Fair Work Commission for an order to stop the bullying.

Our special 2 hour Roundtable will focus on what this means for your business.

The presentation will include:

  • Key differences between the old and new legislation
  • Who is included in the definition of a "Worker" and able to access the Fair Work Commission's assistance
  • What is "Bullying Behaviour" and how this fits with Work Health & Safety requirements
  • What is NOT "Bullying Behaviour"
  • The approach to claims by Fair Work
  • The new process which an application will follow
  • The risks of bullying claims and the changes to Workers Compensation law for stress claims
  • Obligations for you and your employees
  • Tips to mitigate the involvement of the Fair Work Commission
  • Penalties and Fines  - the flow on effect to Workplace Health and Safety
  • Practical steps employers should take to comply with new legislation
