First decided case under new bullying laws …in favour of the Employer
In the first decided application under the new bullying jurisdiction, the Fair Work Commission has rejected a manager’s claim that she was bullied by two of her subordinates.
This decision was important for several reasons:
- The FWC examined the meaning of Reasonable management action‚ π;
- The Employers Investigation Report was considered to be a privileged document because it was prepared by a lawyer; and
Most importantly, employers need to act promptly in investigating these types of claims
