VEOHRC have recently run information sessions for the AEAV and members, providing information about the review. They have outlined the scope of the review and how bullying fits within this. Bullying can be considered either discriminatory or can be a factor contributing to discrimination, sexual harassment or victimisation in the workplace.
There is a clear recognition of the importance of confidentiality for participants making submissions, and a number of avenues to support submission making have been provided. Submissions are unable to be delivered anonymously, however approval will be sought or stories will be de-identified if they are mentioned in the final report.
