A real estate agency's last-minute implementation of a new anti-bullying policy wasn't enough to stop the FWC from ordering it to cease bullying a property consultant that its sales administrator deleted as a Facebook friend after likening her to a "naughty little schoolgirl running to the teacher".
The FWC has refused to issue a stop bullying order to a Fremantle retail employee despite claims she received death threats from a cleaner at the premises, and another stall owner started rumours and stared at her.
The FWC has found that an employee, who was described as a "lackey" and had his appearance likened to a "dwarf" by colleagues was subjected to incidents of unreasonable behaviour in the workplace, but was not bullied because the behaviour was not "repetitious".
A CommSec customer service officer placed on performance plans and counselled for breaching the company's "clean desk" policy has failed to convince the FWC he was bullied by his employer and two supervisors.
A stevedoring giant that guaranteed confidentiality to employees participating in a workplace conduct investigation has won an FWC order restricting publication of their names and complaint details, as it continues to defend a groundbreaking bullying case.
