The Me Too movement has shone a light on some of the unacceptable behaviour that pervades some workplaces. All employees have the right to a safe workplace, both under the Employment Relations Act 2000 and the Workplace Health & Safety Act 2005. Bullying or harassment of ANY kind should never be tolerated in the workplace.
Harassment can be (but is not limited to) language, visual material, online behaviour or physical behaviour of a nature which is unwelcome or offensive to an employee. It could be on the basis of race or colour, gender, religion/ethical belief, orientation, age, disability, marital/family status, political opinion, union membership or being affected by domestic violence.
To be considered bullying or harassment, the behaviour must either be repeated, or of such a significant nature that it is humiliating, offensive or intimidating to an employee and creates a risk to their health and safety and/or has a detrimental effect on their performance at work.
