[Extract] Bullying in the workplace has become a major problem. The subsequent international trend to impose legislation around workplace bullying has led to a significant increase in bullying claims. The intention of such legislation is positive, yet some of these claims can be destructive, particularly when bullying allegations arise from situations where managers are tyring to ensure employees handle reasonable workloads efficiently and effectively. Some employees seek union and human resources support to dfeal with the apparently 'errant' manager. Pity the poor manager, who they been employed for, and for which they receive good compensation.
