The Australian Federal Government has ordered the House of Representatives Standing Committee on Education and Employment to conduct a national inquiry into workplace bullying last year which resulted in over 300 submissions received mainly from victims of bullying across the country. The report entitled “Workplace Bullying: We just want it to stop” was tabled in Parliament on 26 November 2012 and is available from the Commitee’s website:

Brodie’s Law

The report makes reference to the nationalisation of Brodie’s Law (criminalisation of workplace bullying) which has been enacted in Victoria after the suicide of workplace bullying victim, 19 year-old Brodie Panlock in 2006.
