A new Code of Practice on how to handle bullying at work has been introduced in Ireland by the Health and Safety Authority. It provides useful guidance for employers on how to introduce a bullying policy, investigate allegations of bullying and discipline bullies. The Code has been updated to reflect the provisions of the new Safety, Health and Welfare Act 2005 and will come into force on 1 May 2007. Though not of statutory force, the provisions of the Code will be admissible in any court proceedings. A copy of the Code is available at: www.hsa.ie
