Bullying at work means someone or a group repeatedly treats another worker or group unfairly, in a way that can harm their health and safety.

Workplace bullying involves consistent and unfair behaviour towards a worker or group, which negatively impacts their well being and safety. This can include verbal abuse, social exclusion, or unfair work practices. Bullying is not a one time incident; it's a pattern of behaviour that creates a toxic and unsafe work environment. Understanding and addressing bullying is vital for a healthy workplace.
