Workplace Bullying & Harassment

Event Details

    Bullying is an intricate issue and not always very straightforward as it can come in several guises. It can go unnoticed but is more often swept under the carpet until the debilitating effects are felt. As New Zealand lacks a statutory definition of bullying and harassment, it is not uncommon to find managers who are dealing with poor performance to be accused of bullying and harassment. And conversely, genuine cases of bullying and harassment could be overlooked due to a lack of official definitions, policy and procedures.

    Workplace Bullying and Harassment has been designed to help organisations develop practical and effective steps to prevent bullying and harassment as well as to draft a policy and procedures to enable complaints to be handled effectively.

    To ensure both your staff and managers are protected from unwarranted behaviour or future claims based on negligence, Workplace Bullying and Harassment will delve into various case studies and discussions to give you a more comprehensive understanding of the legal and practical implications of bullying and harassment in the workplace.

    Workplace Bullying and Harassment ensures that organisations have an established code of conduct, clear and effective policy and procedures in place to prevent or resolve a situation. A proactive approach to prevent a situation will save the business from a substantial amount of costs from award settlements.
