First stop bullying order made
A worker has been ordered not to make comments about another worker’s clothes or appearance in the first stop bullying order from the Fair Work Commission (FWC).
The FWC’s Senior Deputy President Drake made the order following a conference between the parties on 4 March.
Senior Deputy President Drake has also ordered the worker who was the subject of the application not to have contact with the applicant alone, not to send any emails or texts to the applicant except in emergencies, not to raise any work issues without notifying the chief operating officer (of the worker who was the subject of the application) or his subordinate, beforehand, and to exercise at the employer’s premises before 8.00 am.
The worker who lodged the application has been ordered not to arrive at work before 8.15 am.
“Parties have leave to approach to have the matter relisted for further conference should there be any difficulty with the implementation of the Orders,” Senior Deputy President Drake said.
