Anti-bullying Quarterly Report Released

The Fair Work Commission’s quarterly report on the new anti-bullying legislation has been released showing that from 1  January to 31 March 2014, 151 applications were made, of which:

  • 32 applications were withdrawn before determination,
  • 16 were resolved during proceedings
  • 7 were dismissed,
  • 8 of which were the subject of decision by the Commission;
  • of which 1 application was granted.

Whilst it is difficult to tell from the figures, it appears the legislation is doing its job in dealing with bullying claims promptly to stop bullying rather than facilitate compensation claims.
