Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How is Bullying different from harassment or discrimination?

Bullying is defined by its behaviour, and can potentially affect the emotional, mental and psychological well-being of workers. Harassment and discrimination are usually pertinent to a particular characteristic e.g. race, gender or sexual orientation.

Behaviours which can be considered as bulling are as follows:

• physical or verbal abuse;
• screaming, yelling, offensive or demeaning language;
• excluding or isolating certain individuals;
• psychological harassment;
• threatening behaviour that intimidates a person;
• allocating meaningless or demeaning tasks to one worker, outside the scope of their job;
• assigning impossible tasks;
• designing work rosters to inconvenience a particular person;
• undermining work performance by not providing adequate information.
