Bullying in the workplace can affect both the safety and the health of employees. As an employee you have both rights and responsibilities. Under the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005 employers have a duty to ensure the health and safety of their employees in the workplace and employees have a duty to their colleagues not to bully them, that is to say, you cannot engage in improper behaviour which would endanger the health, safety and welfare of yourself or the other employees.

The Education section provides further explanation and information on workplace bullying and it is important that you take the time to read this information.  In addition, if you feel you are being bullied the Q&A I want to make a complaint provides additional information and answers to some common questions.  If you have been accused of bullying and a complaint has been made against you, read Q&A A complaint made against me.
