Workplace Bullying in South Australia
From 1 January 2014, most workers in South Australia are covered by anti-bullying laws contained in the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth). These rules apply broadly to people who are not just employees, but also contractors, subcontractors, outworkers, apprentices, trainees and volunteers. However, only those workers who work for a ‘constitutional corporation’ or the Commonwealth government are covered by the laws. This means that if you work in for the South Australian government or a local government, or for a sole trader, a partnership or a trust, you probably won’t be covered by these laws. If you work for one of these excluded entities, you can make a complaint of workplace bullying to Safework SA, the workplace health and safety regulator in South Australia.
