Bullying claims at veterans’ home

A Canberra retirement home for military veterans is being rocked by a bullying scandal that has forced the ACT’s work safety authority to intervene.

The Morshead retirement village in Canberra’s inner north has been ordered by WorkSafe ACT to investigate serious allegations of bullying. Work Safety Commissioner Mark McCabe said an ”improvement notice” had been issued to Morshead to conduct an independent inquiry into accusations of harassment.

The home said yesterday that it was ready to comply with the WorkSafe order and had begun work, before the commissioner became involved, to address the workplace culture at the Lyneham retirement village.
