New Code of Practice on the Prevention and Resolution of Bullying in the Workplace in Ireland
02 Mar 2021
With effect from 1 January 2021, a new code of practice replaces two statutory codes in relation to the prevention and resolution of bullying in the workplace.
- The Industrial Relations Act 1990 (Code of Practice for Employers and Employees on the Prevention and Resolution of Bullying at Work) Order 2020 (the "2020 Code") was jointly developed by the Health and Safety Authority and the Workplace Relations Commission.
- The 2020 Code replaces both the 2002 and 2007 codes of practice and provides consolidated guidance to employers about the processes and procedures to be followed when dealing with a complaint of bullying.
