Discrimination, Bullying and Harassment

We all have a right to feel safe at work, and to work in an environment that is free from discrimination, bullying and harassment.

There are a number of steps you can take if you are being bullied, harassed or discriminated against in the workplace. If you feel you are being bullied by your manager, it is important to make sure what you are experiencing is bullying or harassment and not just reasonable management action. If you are think you are being bullied or discriminated against in the workplace, seek advice from a professional to learn about your options.
