Bullying start date delayed

The Fair Work Commission (FWC) won’t start hearing bullying claims until January 2014, under legislation currently before federal parliament.

The federal government amended the Fair Work Amendment Bill 2013 two weeks ago to change the start date from July to January.

The bill has passed the House of Representatives and is now in the Senate.

If the bill passes both houses of parliament, from January workers in constitutionally covered businesses will be able to apply to the FWC for an order to stop bullying.

The FWC will be able to issue any order it considers appropriate, other than the payment of money.

For more details, visit the bill.
