Call to end all forms of bul­ly­ing in work­place

The Advertiser - Careers - - Job Focus -

THE Fed­eral Government can work to stamp out bul­ly­ing in work­places and im­prove out­comes for vic­tims, says na­tional de­pres­sion ini­tia­tive be­yond­blue.

Par­lia­ment’s Stand­ing Com­mit­tee on Ed­u­ca­tion and Em­ploy­ment report into work­place bul­ly­ing rec­om­mends ac­tions to pave the way for more men­tally healthy work­places in Aus­tralia.

Be­yond­blue chief ex­ec­u­tive Kate Car­nell says the Government and work­places should con­sider the report se­ri­ously and ask what they can do to re­duce work­place bul­ly­ing.

‘‘ An im­por­tant fac­tor in de­vel­op­ing a men­tally healthy work­place is to elim­i­nate any form of bul­ly­ing,’’ she says.
