Bullying: Complaints, Investigations and Resolution

Date Time Presented by Registration
6 March 2019 12.00pm - 1.00pm Liz Coats Registration closed

Bullying is an insidious issue that affects many workplaces, often only rising to the surface after having been an issue for some time. With WorkSafe issuing its bullying guidelines, bullying has been given fresh attention and the spotlight is being shined on employers whose processes for dealing with bullying are not "up to scratch".

This webinar will focus on the process for dealing with bullying complaints - from when the complaint is received through to different forms of resolution. It will also cover WorkSafe's approach to complaints about bullying, and consider recent relevant cases.

Attendees will gain a more detailed understanding of WorkSafe's guidelines for workplace bullying, ideas for internal policies and procedures on bullying, and confidence in implementing bullying investigations.

Presented by Liz Coats, Bell Gully
