The new Code (Industrial Relations Act 1990 Code of Practice for Employers and Employees on the Prevention and Resolution of Bullying at Work Order 2020) is clear that behaviours associated with the management of performance may constitute a pattern of bullying.
The New Code of Practice for Employers and Employees on the Prevention and Resolution of Bullying at Work was recently published by the Workplace Relations Commission and the Health and Safety Authority. There are a number of changes and employers should ensure these changes are reflected in their policies and in the appropriate training for their staff.

Due to a recent High Court judgement, there may be some change coming in relation to how internal bullying investigations are handled.
