Concerned About Bullying and Harassment?

Bullying and harassment can be detrimental to a workplace. These two things may increase workplace safety risks and cause, contribute or exacerbate mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, burnout, stress or fatigue. Victims of bullying may also be less productive and have increased absences from work.

While bullying and harassment are similar, they are treated differently under New Zealand law. For example, racial harassment and sexual harassment are specifically covered by the Employment Relations Act 2000 and the Human Rights Act 1993.

But what do you do if you’re an employer, and you have to deal with workplace issues relating to bullying and harassment? Not only do you have to consider how to manage such a delicate situation, you also have to do it the right way.

Sometimes there can be a grey area and you may need some help.

That’s what Employsure is here for. Every day we assist hundreds of New Zealand small businesses with their workplace relations and health and safety.

We can help you with your bullying and harassment questions. So why not give us a call now and see how we can help you?
