WorkSafe NZ describes bullying as “being repeated and unreasonable behaviour directed towards a worker or group of workers that can lead to physical or psychological harm”. Many employees suffer silently when being bullied by a co-worker or manager, as they often don’t realise they are being bullied. Action is usually only taken once the employee has suffered significant psychological harm and finds their workplace an unsafe and uncomfortable space. Resolve Legal can support you in raising concerns when you have been bullied and solve the issue as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Workplace bullying is difficult to control and has significant negative effects on employee well-being, health and productivity. Some examples of workplace bullying include victimising, humiliating, intimidating, threatening, discrimination and violence, which can take on many different forms and can be hard to notice as a manager.
