Bullying complaints are escalating, notably among senior employees and leaders, against a backdrop of increasing stress, remote management and workplace tensions.
With the capacity for allegations to be publicly aired in the Fair Work Commission's stop-bullying jurisdiction, this is an area demanding all employers' attention.

- The rise in bullying claims;
- Stop-bullying applications in the Fair Work Commission;
- Reputation and other risks arising in this jurisdiction;
- Legal representation, anonymity and other key issues;
- Tips on preventing and defending stop-bullying applications;
