A worker applying for anti-bullying orders, and for the Fair Work Commission to report her employer to a WHS regulator, has failed to demonstrate she was subjected to repeated unreasonable behaviour in the workplace.
A business manager who used profane and belittling language when speaking to a worker has been fined for bullying the man, in the latest of a series of safety and workers' comp cases against the business.
A business partner has been fined $130,000 after a worker died falling off a vehicle being driven by an inexperienced operator. Meanwhile, Victoria has launched campaigns targeting workplace bullying in the healthcare sector and urging workers to call out s-xual harassment when they see it.
An employer took steps to prevent physical injuries through its "no-lift" policy, and to prevent alleged bullying through roster changes and mandatory training, the Fair Work Commission has found in dismissing a worker's bid for stop-bullying orders.
A worker who claimed his supervisor's flatulence constituted assault that contributed to his injuries has lost his second bid for $1.8 million in damages, with an appeals court finding, among other things, that his former employer's purported lack of OHS and HR policies was irrelevant.
