John Melis, Expert

Hi, I am John Melis, the solicitor. I am in Australia. I want to thank you for taking the time to speak with me today.

Hopefully, together we can find the right path for you. May I suggest the following for your consideration?

You are being bullied in the workplace..

​The detail you have provided shows there is workplace bullying.

Bullying may involve a wide range of behaviour: including harassment, victimisation and racial vilification; abusive, insulting, or offensive language or comments; unjustified criticism or complaints; withholding information that is vital for effective work performance; setting unreasonable timelines or constantly changing deadlines; setting tasks that are unreasonably below or beyond a person’s skill level; denying access to information, supervision, consultation or resources to the detriment of the worker; spreading misinformation or malicious rumours; changing work arrangements, such as roster and leave, to inconvenience a particular worker or workers deliberately.

You may make an application to stop bullying under the Fair Work Act with the Fair Work Commission.

​You’re handling this matter very well.

If there is anything else, big or small, that I can help you with today, please let me know?
