justicescales

A builder has been fined $12,500 for bullying an apprentice in his employ over a 2 year period.

The bullying which came not only from the builder himself but other employees who he encouraged to join in on the bullying of the apprentice.

The bullying and harassment apparently only stopped when the apprentice left the job.

The teenage apprentice was subjected to extreme and shocking harassment and abuse including verbal, physical and psychological abuse.

A victim impact statement said that the apprentice still suffers  from anxiety, depression, nightmares and insomnia caused by the bullying.

This conviction serves as a reminder to those who use their positions of power over others to abuse and bully them that this is not acceptable and they will be brought to book for their unacceptable behaviour.
