Bullying in the Workplace

90 minutes

Workplace bullying can be a health and safety issue. The impact of bullying can cause stress, anxiety and psychiatric injury that can last for many years.  It may also infect the workplace, affecting production and the achievement of workplace goals.  Employers have a “duty of care” obligation to provide a safe working environment; meaning psychologically safe, as well as physically safe.  In this workshop, the presenter will define and give examples of bullying, discuss how it affects people and the school district, how it differs from harassment, and what can be done about it by both employees and employers.
