Moira Jenkins is running another two of the highly successful Mediating Workplace Bullying Complaints workshops, in conjunction with the Resolution Institute (Formally LEADR). The two new workshops have been scheduled for 27 May in Sydney and 24 June in Melbourne.
Mediating workplace bullying complaints needs to take into account more factors than might be involved in a normal mediation. Moira, argues that mediation is appropriate to deal with many mild workplace bullying allegations as long as the power dynamics are addressed and a risk management approach is used. Her paper Mediating Bullying Complaints: taking an occupational health and safety approach explains this in more detail.
The workshop content is currently being updated to reflect the latest in bullying research, legal cases and ADR issues that relate to workplace bullying, and Moira will be able to add more to this content when she returns from the International Workplace Bullying and Harassment Conference which will be held in NZ in April.
If you are interested in attending one of these workshops, you can register your interest through the Australian and NZ Resolution Institute, and be forewarned, last year workshops filled up very fast.
