National anti-bullying legislation

In recent years Maurice Blackburn has campaigned for the introduction of a national anti-bullying law. We are delighted that new federal anti-bullying laws came into effect on 1 January 2014. These laws are designed to stop workplace bullying promptly. However, the laws do not entitle bullying victims to monetary compensation or reinstatement.

Fighting against bullying in the workplace

What the national anti-bullying laws mean for you.

  • Is your employment covered by the Federal anti-bullying laws?
  • Are you experiencing repeated and unreasonable behaviour in connection with your work?
  • Is the behaviour creating a risk to your physical or mental health or safety?
  • Is the behaviour likely to continue unless action is taken to stop the behaviour?

If you answered yes to the above questions then you should consider seeking advice in relation to your legal options as soon as possible. We have a highly successful record in employment and bullying litigation and can assist you today.
