Understanding and addressing workplace bullying

Workplace bullying is a significant psychological hazard and a risk to the health and safety of many nurses, midwives and carers. People don't always like one another however, everyone has a duty to ensure that workplace bullying does NOT occur and should treat each other with tolerance, dignity and respect. This section includes the new ANMF (Vic Branch) Guide to Assist Members - Workplace Bullying.


To assist members understand workplace bullying and address situations that arise, ANMF (Vic Branch) has developed the Workplace Bullying Guide.

The aim of the guide is to provide relevant information that will assist members to clearly understand:

  • what does and does not constitute workplace bullying
  • the legal obligations of employers to prevent and manage the risks of workplace bullying
  • employee obligations and
  • what you can do if you experience bullying or it is not being properly managed at your workplace.

Always seek assistance early if you believe a person's behaviour towards you is bullying, do not ignore the situation. Receiving help early and in a practical and balanced way will prevent further problems from occurring.

If you are experiencing workplace bullying, you should, where appropriate, speak with your manager, or the next appropriate level of management, or the Human Resources Department and/or you can call the ANMF (Vic Branch) for assistance.

The ANMF (Vic Branch) Workplace Bullying brochure and Guide to Assist Members are only available through the Members Only section. Click here and enter your name and password to access these documents .
