By law, employers have to ensure that their workplace is safe. Bullying is a health hazard so employers should take action to prevent or stop it.
If you are being bullied at work, you can try discussing what is happening with a manager, health and safety person or union representative. It is also a good idea to keep a record of what is happening.
Visit the SafeWork SA website for more information about workplace bullying and what to do about it.
If you are bullied at work because of your race, disability, sexuality or other characteristic covered by discrimination law, or you are sexual harassed, you can lodge a complaint with the Equal Opportunity Commission.
For a short quiz on bullying, go to the ACTU Worksite website.
If you need some extra support, there are many services for young people available. Some of these are listed below.
