Bullying does not cover fair and constructive feedback of an employee’s performance or conduct. While there may be times where you feel hurt or that you are being treated unfairly, this does not necessarily mean you are a victim of workplace bullying. It is important to assess what is happening objectively.
Managers have a right to manage their staff, set standards, and motivate staff to perform effectively.
How to respond to a compliant?
Response to any complaint should be guided by company policy and procedures (for example Grievance and Disciplinary Polices, Dignity at Work, Health & Safety, Equal Opportunities).
Employers should always respond and it is very important that you act promptly as this increases the chances of a successful resolution. If you do not act to resolve the complaint as quickly as possible, things may get worse.
