Bullying in a work environment can cause tremendous emotional distress as well as severely impact on people’s capacity to carry out their role. Employers have a duty of care to employees and there are a number of remedies you can pursue if you believe you are being bullied. For managers it is important to ensure that staff are enabled to work in a supportive environment which maximises their ability to contribute.
