Workplace Bullying and Harrassment Investigations
Investigations, Investigation Agencies, Investigation Services
Times are changing. No longer are business operators able to ignore inappropriate behaviour in the workplace. Nowadays, they risk having to defend themselves in costly legal proceedings if they fail to take action. Equally, they risk losing valuable members of staff and increasing absentee rates.
Dr Ann Wyatt from the School of Risk and Safety Sciences at the University of New South Wales, says employers need to view the safety risk posed by bullying as seriously as they do the dangers of faulty equipment. Health issues associated with bullying include anxiety, depression and post traumatic stress disorder.
When issues of harassment and bullying arise in your workplace, it is easy to think you can simply handle the matter yourself or appoint an HR staffer to carry out the investigation, however this approach can be fraught with problems. Kate Southam from CareerOne.com.au says it is vital employers appoint third party specialists to investigate bullying allegations. HR personnel often become the ‘meat in the sandwich’ and matters may not be dealt with rigorously or impartially.
