New bullying laws pass

The Fair Work Commission (FWC) will start hearing bullying claims in January 2014 under legislation that passed federal parliament last week.

The Fair Work Amendment Bill 2013 passed both houses of parliament last Thursday evening and was assented to on Friday.

From January, any worker employed in a constitutionally covered business 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 legislation and last fortnight’s Safe-T-Bulletin.
