Workplace bullying in Australia

Christopher Magee, Ross Gordon, Peter Caputi, Lindsay Oades, Samantha Reis, Laura Robinson

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


Workplace bullying is a common occurrence in Australian workplaces, and has important implications for the well-being of employees, and productivity of organisations. Precise estimates of the prevalence of workplace bullying vary depending on factors including the specific approach used to assess bullying, sampling methodology, cultural factors, and sample characteristics (Nielsen, Matthiesen, & Einarsen, 2010). However, in Australia, it is estimated that 5 – 7% of employees have experienced recent workplace bullying (i.e., within a 6 month timeframe); a further 40% report having experienced workplace bullying earlier in their career.
