Bullying & harassment

All complaints of bullying and/or harassment, including sexual or racial harassment, must be taken seriously and be addressed swiftly and sensitively. These kinds of workplace investigations can be extremely complicated, time consuming and subject to challenge. We recommend that professional advice be obtained in circumstances involving allegations of bullying and/or harassment before the allegations are addressed and investigated. This is particularly important for those who are not familiar with this area of employment law or who are not experienced in managing workplace investigations.
