Unhealthy workplace behaviour (eg conflict, bullying) - What you can do about it

Office closure

Our offices will close from Monday 24 December 2018 and will reopen on Thursday 3 January 2019. For urgent assistance during that period you can contact us.

If there is bullying or conflict at your workplace, use the following four step process.  Remember support is always available eg talk to a friend, your doctor or an counseller, or an advocate.

Step 1

Talk to the person

  • Tell the person/s what specific behaviours are affecting you and
  • You want the person/s to stop

Step 2

Report it in writing

If the behaviours continue lodge a report with your employer

  • Follow your employer’s procedure (if available)
  • State the behaviours of concern
  • State the effect on yourself including your health
  • State what action you would prefer e.g. mediation, investigation

Step 3

Follow up after two weeks

If you have not received a response from your employer since submitting your report, ask them for an update 

Step 4

Research your external resolution options
