Greens back bullying laws

Greens Deputy Leader and workplace spokesperson, Adam Bandt MP, has backed the government’s push for workplace bullying laws announced today.

Mr Bandt also said he was pleased to see an enforcement role for the Fair Work Commission in the announcement, something the government has so far failed to include within its ‘flexible work’ request proposal.

“There should be no place for bullying in our workplaces,” Mr Bandt said.

“I am glad the government has accepted the need for workers to have access to an independent umpire when employers don’t act on bullying.”

“Everyone deserves a safe workplace. “
