Workplace Counselling: - Workplace Bullying and Harrassment by Katherine Foster

At some point in our career, we have either directly experienced or know of someone who has experienced Workplace Bullying, Abuse, Intimidation and Harassment.

But how do you help someone going through this challenging period?

Follow Blu Ripples ® 5 Step Action Plan, and you will be on the way to resolving the presenting concern.

5-Step Action Plan – Addressing Bullying, Abuse, Intimidation and Harassment

Step 1. Gather your evidence and relevant information, be it photographs, e-mails, diary and file notes, eye witness accounts, inc. statutory declarations.

Step 2. Review your employment agreements, corporate policies and procedures.

Step 3. Compile your evidence into an Incident Report Summary – ensure you keep to the FACTS and be HONEST!

Step 4. Seek Internal Support from Human Resources or your Supervisor;  if your supervisor is the one abusing, bullying or intimidating you, go to their manager.

Step 5. Develop a strong External Professional Support network be it your GP (Doctor), Counsellor, Employment Lawyer, Union Representative, Workers  Compensation (NSW) or Fair Work Ombudsman

Provide COPIES of all incident summaries and evidence to your External Support network as and when required – Keep the originals for our reference! Need additional helpcontact Katherine.
