Success Story: Helping a telecommunications company defend a bullying claim

Workforce Guardian's HR Consulting Team has a strong record of success in representing and defending employers in unfair dismissal, general protections, discrimination and bullying claims over many years. Below is a recent success story for one of our clients.

THE PROBLEM

Workforce Guardian was contacted by a business over an employee who had made a bullying claim in the Fair Work Commission against the employer and various employees within the business.

THE SOLUTION

Workforce Guardian planned and advised on appropriate strategies for protecting the company's interests including responding to the claim, as well as to understand the legal jurisdiction of the Commission and the potential risks in relation to such claims. There was no admission of liability by the company and none was established in the ensuing mediation. The company agreed to have their workplace policies and processes reviewed and updated by Workforce Guardian to ensure ongoing compliance. The matter has been closed by the Commission with no compensation awarded to the employee.
