Code of Practice for Employers and Employees on the Prevention and Resolution of Bullying at Work

The Code of Practice provides practical guidance on the management of workplace bullying complaints and on the prevention of workplace bullying, in line with the requirements of the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005, Section 8(2)(b).

It also provides guidance on identifying, managing and preventing bullying at work and highlights the procedure to be put in place by employers and the need to clearly state that bullying in the workplace is not acceptable and complaints of bullying will be dealt with sensitively. The Code reinforces obligations for employers to progress complaints informally where possible, and otherwise, as appropriate, formally.
