Laws are failing bullying victims

THE absence of a single, nationally accepted definition of what constitutes workplace bullying makes policing and prosecuting it extremely difficult, a federal inquiry will be told when its Melbourne hearings start tomorrow.
The federal government launched the inquiry into bullying last month and has received hundreds of submissions from individuals who say they have been victims in workplaces around the nation.
Many groups concerned about the impact of a lack of clear laws in the area have also made submissions.
Among those scheduled to appear at hearings tomorrow in Melbourne is the Law Institute of Victoria.
