Bully in Workplace
I have a question on this topic, my colleague was bully by a senior staff (not a manager, but act as manager) . And abused of her power, although she work there for 20 over years, she was just a Jr. Admin Executive which promoted recently. When the staff speak up this issues to her own Department manager, the manager tend to avoid the topic.
And the branch manager was working there more than 30 years, he know it but did not do anything about it.
My colleague was insulted by words , until she cannot take it anymore and cry out loud in front of me.
I wish to know how to handle these kind of problem, did any law protect the employees from bullying by senior staff as the Australia government do?
