A Multi-Faceted Approach
Staunton Caulfield & Co. were instructed by a client who felt bullied and harassed at work by a superior. The matter had developed to a point where the employee felt unable to continue in that employment and sought medical advice about anxiety issues. Staunton Caulfield & Co. ensured the matter was resolved satisfactorily through mediation, and the employee was able to return to work on agreed terms. Had this not succeeded, Staunton Caulfield & Co. would have represented the client in a claim for Constructive Dismissal before the Workplace Relations Commission – a course of action which we have taken successfully in other cases.
Assured Advice you can count on
Unfortunately, it is not always possible to resolve such cases through mediation. Some instances of workplace bullying are so serious as to give rise to a personal injuries claim in the Courts. Staunton Caulfield & Co. are pleased to assist employees who find themselves in this challenging and worrying situation to ensure that they are fully compensated for the anxiety or other personal injuries they have suffered.
