Workplace Bullying

Reducing the cost of workplace bullying

Why should I be worried about workplace bullying?

Thanks to recent legal cases on workplace bullying and growing awareness of the economic and human cost of workplace bullying, ‘managing for respect’ has become a priority for managers and HR teams in many government departments.

Departments are counting the costs of bullying in terms of Comcare premiums, compensation claims, high staff turnover, lost productivity and reputational damage.

  • A department’s weakest link may be lack of manager experience in building respectful relationships in the workplace and in managing inappropriate behaviour when it occurs.

Did you know that:

  • The Australian Psychological Society says that 70% of workers have experienced bullying at some time, and a further 13% have witnessed it?
  • A recent APSC survey revealed that 17.4% of workers are bullied each year?
  • Workers injured by workplace bullying are off work for an average of 1.5 years?
  • For every $1 spent on compensation, $2 are spent on case management and on-costs?
  • Comcare premiums for injury due to workplace bullying are in the $ millions, and rising?
  • With the removal of the ‘shield of the Crown’ in January 2013, individual managers and supervisors can be personally liable if they do not protect workers from harm?
  • FairWork Australia now has responsibility for workplace bullying claims?
