Reporting bullying at the University of Newcastle
If you experience or are aware of a situation at the University that may constitute bullying, and the issue cannot be resolved by discussion between the parties involved, then there are a number of ways that you can report the situation and seek advice, support, and assistance in resolving the matter - see Dealing with bullying webpage.
Workplace bullying behaviour can pose a health and safety risk. If you believe that your, or another person's health and safety is at risk from workplace bullying behaviour you should contact the Health and Safety Team for assistance and advice as soon as possible.
