One year after the introduction of Brodie’s Law, the Victorian government has launched a campaign targeting schools and workplaces with information about the seriousness and new criminal consequences of bullying behaviour.Workplace bullying is set to gain much more media attention as the Victorian Attorney-General, Robert Clark, launches the new anti-bullying campaign.
Victoria launched much needed anti bullying campaign
The campaign has been pushed for by the parents of Brodie Panlock.
Attorney-General Robert Clark said the ‘Take a stand against bullying’ campaign will see information about bullying and Brodie’s Law distributed to more than 8000 schools, workplaces and police stations across Victoria.
Victoria Police has also been very supportive of Brodie’s Law and the Panlock family and have produced a wonderful Youtube video explaining the law in a far more effective manner than conventional ways.
The Attorney-General Clark also said in a media release:
“Everyone is entitled to be safe in our community and no one should be forced to suffer from bullying… Authorities rely on information from the community to stamp out bullying, so if you or someone you know is being bullied, report it. All bullying is unacceptable, and serious bullying is a serious crime.”
“Having Brodie’s Law in place is about sending a strong message that threatening, bullying behavior – in the workplace or elsewhere – will not be tolerated…”
Brodie Panlock and her parents, as well as Attorney General Clark deserve our full support in their efforts to combat workplace bullying.
