Workplace bullying is currently in the spotlight following the recent release of WorkSafe New Zealand’s guidelines on the subject. But how have the guidelines, written for lay persons, changed the way in which workplace bullying should be addressed by practitioners? What do legal practitioners need to be aware of in advising on, investigating or litigating alleged bullying? What will be the likely effect of the first real attempt in New Zealand at a universal definition of the concept, and how will that impact on established case law?
This webinar will address the practical and legal implications of the way in which bullying allegations should be progressed in light of the guidelines’ release. It will explore the extent to which they may change or modify how the Authority and Court ultimately deal with them.
Please contact us if you use a dial up internet connection.
You will gain:
- A greater awareness of the practical implications of the guidelines for practitioners.
- Insight into the ways in which the decision makers might interpret and apply the new guidelines.

In February 2014, WorkSafe New Zealand, in conjunction with the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment, released a comprehensive set of guidelines – Preventing and responding to workplace bullying. The Guidelines represent New Zealand’s first centralised attempt at defining the concept of bullying at a practical level. But what do they mean for lawyers? This webinar aims to explore key aspects of the Guidelines and identify what practitioners need to be aware of in advising on, investigating or litigating workplace bullying claims in light of the Guidelines’ release.
These are the slides included in the presentation.
