The significant impact of Bullying and Harassment in the workplace is now better understood and it appears that the problem is more prevalent than previously assumed. As outlined in the Worksafe NZ Best Practice Guidelines February 2014, bullying is a workplace hazard. See Worksafe Guidelines.
Employers have an obligation to protect their staff against such hazards and this obligation is going to be increased under the pending legislation Health and Safety Reform Bill - New Zealand Legislation.
