  1. Hi, I wondered if anyone could help me. I am on a 187 sponsored regional migration visa, I’m currently on the bridging visa and my application was logged January 2019. I am being sponsored as a duty manager and prior to my sponsorship I was working for the employer for 9 months. I have now been there for 16 months. Since getting sponsored my boss has completely changed his demeanour. His family has joined him in running the business and they daughter gets away with doing nothing but gets paid the same as me. Despite the fact that my role is duty manager, she has been put in this position. After a few months into my sponsorship I went off sick for 2 days (first time since being employed there that I wasn’t off sick) and when I returned I had heard that they thought I was lying and that I’m not reliable etc. This really annoyed me and I chatted with my boss and said I wasn’t happy. I said I can’t work with the daughter as whatever decision I make gets over ruled by her decision. After this they put me in the kitchen, and ever since I have been working as a kitchen hand which is not my job role. I have mentioned this many times and he seems to think it is fine and won’t move me out of there. I’ve been extremely stressed and absolutely hate going to work. I’ve lost a lot of weightdue to the stress and it is a horrible environment to work in. It is very bitchy and the bitching comes from management. I am over worked and get only one day off per week, work split shifts everyday despite living 60 k away. I don’t get to spend time with my boyfriend which is making me more stressed. I was off sick for 2 days again last month and I received abusive text messages from my boss saying I was lying and that I have to come into work with my medical certificates. I sent him my certificates and he still sent me nasty messages. This really upset me. He also took money out of my wages when I first got the sponsorship to pay for the $3000 business tax. I think I’m right in saying that this is wrong however I haven’t questioned it because I’m so scared that my life will be made hell there again. I also do not want him to have this over me that he has invested in me. There is another lady also on Sponsorship visa and she too is in the same situation as me. Her life has been made hell and I know she is very stresssed. The boss’ daughter does not like her and they are just hoping that she is going to mess up so they can get rid of her. They have given her a formal warning when she has done nothing wrong. Please help us and let us know what we can do in this situation. I really just want to walk out the door and be happy again, but after investing all this money I do not want to lose it. We are so stressed and it’s affecting our health, surely with two of us there is something we can do? Thanks!
  2. We are hearing more and more cases of cyber bullying, it is no different to bullying in the playground/school/work place. The government has launched two sites about bullying of children, please take a look and make sure your children are aware of them.:policeman: http://www.bullyingnoway.gov.au/ http://www.takeastandtogether.gov.au
  3. New laws under which workplace bullies will be imprisoned for up to 10 years have been welcomed by the family of a 19-year-old woman who committed suicide after being tormented by workmates. Damien Panlock, father of Brodie, who jumped to her death in 2006 after being victimised by colleagues at Cafe Vamp in Hawthorn, said the laws won’t bring Brodie back but legislation that protects young workers is "never too late". "This is Brodie’s legacy," Mr Panlock told The Age. "If someone else can be protected from scum like these people, and they know that they are going to be charged, and they are going to have jail time, they might think twice." Attorney-General Robert Clark is expected to table the Crimes Amendment (Bullying) Bill, 2011, in Parliament on Thursday. A government spokesperson said the Baillieu Government would amend stalking legislation to include workplace and cyber bullying. Mr Panlock has worked closely with the Brumby and Baillieu governments on framing the laws, but said he would reserve his final judgment until he saw the legislation. He said he would get advice on whether the laws cover the "grey areas . . . which are part and parcel of why these people haven’t been charged over Brodie". "Our family has been fighting to (have workplace bullying the subject of criminal charges for a year plus," he said. "We haven’t been sitting on our hands." "When you assault someone, that’s a criminal charge, isn’t it? Brodie was assaulted, physically, and there are witnesses. "Nothing’s ever too late ... If this can save someone else’s family ... in the future, if the law is good enough for that, fine. But if it’s not, it doesn’t mean a thing does it?" Victoria Police have not charged the men responsible for bullying Brodie. Victorian Attorney-General Robert Clark said today that "serious bullying was a serious crime" and should carry a significant jail term. "These changes will put beyond doubt that the terrible suffering inflicted on Brodie Panlock will constitute the offence of stalking and carry a jail term of up to 10 years," he told 3AW. Mr Clark said Victorian families were "entitled to be confident" that young workers were protected from victimisation at work. "These changes should give parents confidence that their children can start out in the workforce without being victim to this terrible bullying."

    Cyber Bullying

    How serious do you take it? Do you think the police do enough to bring justice to the victims? I know someone who is being cyber bullied, well as well as being abused offline, I think it's digusting that something hasn't been done about it sooner :mad: what are you thoughts on this?

    Bullying in schools.

    I think we all know that bullying in schools is a massive problem and one that many schools seem unwilling or unable to tackle. Many would have seen the incident on the news showing us a boy obviously taunting and punching another child, the bullied child finally had enough after being punched 3 or 4 times and picked up the bully and body slammed him onto the concrete which appeared to have the desired effect. I have no problem saying that I was 'cheering' for the bullied child. I was never bullied in any of my schools but I was pretty big but I do feel for those who suffer from it.
