The Victorian Auditor-General's damning audit report on the state health sector's response to bullying and harassment has found its agencies lack even the "fundamental, underpinning foundations of effective policies and procedures" to tackle the issue.
A veteran Qantas flight attendant who won her job back in 2014 after winning an unfair dismissal case is back in the FWC, with the airline this week failing to block the tribunal from hearing her anti-bullying application.
FWC refuses extension for AWU adverse action case against gas companies; Mental health hospitalisation deemed "exceptional circumstances"; Violent confrontation not an exercise of workplace rights; and Manager's "kicked like a dog" complaint did not lead to adverse action: Court.
Making a project manager redundant after granting his request to be transferred to a less secure position did not constitute adverse action as the new role was better for his mental health and the employer's decision was based on his competence, qualifications, tenure and a business downturn, a court has found.
A construction company - which came to the attention of the Heydon Royal Commission for paying AWU membership fees on behalf of employees, even if they were not members - has been ordered to pay $1.3 million in damages after admitting it failed to prevent a female labourer being s-xually harassed and bullied by her workmates.
