Harassment, bullying and personal safety and Sexual harassment

Workplace bullying can be either direct or indirect behaviour which is perceived as undermining an employee’s right to dignity and respect at work. It can be manifested through intimidation, threats, victimisation, offensive and/or humiliating behaviour towards another person and is defined by the effect of the behaviour, even though there may not be specific intent to bully.

What can I do?

  • Ensure that all members are aware of the SSTUWA workplace bullying info sheet found at
    sstuwa.org.au or by clicking here.
  • Ensure staff are aware that you are the women’s contact officer at your worksite/branch.
  • Monitor meetings to ensure protocols and procedures are established and followed to minimise intimidation and bullying tactics.
