Rachael talks to us about what constitutes as workplace bullying, specifically providing some excellent preventative steps on how to avoid the matter occurring in a workplace to begin with. Everything from workplace culture through to recruitment. Also in the video, Rachael talks about what employers should do when reacting to the issue – outlining requirements for investigations and the need for natural justice.
