Workplace bullying is becoming an increasingly recognised issue, despite its lack of recognition in New Zealand employment legislation.
The WorkSafe guidelines, Preventing and responding to workplace bullying, were released this year and provided clarity around what constitutes bullying.
One in four employees have had a workplace dispute in the past year that has affected their ability to fully do their job, a new survey has found.
The survey, by Crown-owned dispute mediation consultancy FairWay Resolution, asked about 400 workers about conflict in the workplace.
From NZHerald.co.nzThe New Zealand workforce has changed dramatically over the past 24 years.
In mid-1990 our workforce was young and energetic with 338,500, or 22 per cent, of all employed workers in the 15 to 24 age bracket. By mid-2014 the total number of 15 to 24 year old workers had declined to 325,700 or just 14 per cent of the workforce.
