Employers must wake up to the fact that workplace bullying is be­coming one of Australia's major so­cial issues and could be adverse­ly affecting the health of thousands of employees.

Personal injury law firm Trilby Misso has claimed it is receiving at least 12 enquiries per month from people who are suffering extreme stress or depression caused by bul­lying in the workplace.

Trilby Misso managing lawyer Robyn Davies said: "This is double the number of enquiries we were getting a year ago and bullying is now among the most common complaints we receive from work­ers seeking compensation.

"But we believe that these num­bers represent only the tip of the iceberg. People who phone us are usually at their wits end, having tried to improve the situation over a period of months or even years."

A Productivity Commission re­port released this year found the effects of workplace stress, in­cluding bullying, cost employers $10 billion a year through absenteeism and diminished per­formance.
