"These terms seem reasonable but the biggest risk is that the workplace bullying focus is diluted by school bullying issues. There is an assumption that school bullying behaviours are carried over to the workplace and that workplace bullying could be reduced by increased attention at the school. This assumption needs to be addressed early in the inquiry as the submissions to the inquiry and the media coverage could become severely skewed away from the original intention."
Here is the list of those politicians who will be hearing and reading submissions:-
|Ms Amanda Rishworth MP (Chair)||Australian Labor Party, Kingston, SA|
|Mr Rowan Ramsey MP (Deputy Chair)||Liberal Party of Australia, Grey, SA|
|Mrs Karen Andrews MP||Liberal Party of Australia, McPherson, QLD|
|Mrs Yvette D’Ath MP||Australian Labor Party, Petrie, QLD|
|Ms Deborah O’Neill MP||Australian Labor Party, Robertson, NSW|
|Mr Mike Symon MP||Australian Labor Party, Deakin, VIC|
|Mr Alan Tudge MP||Liberal Party of Australia, Aston, VIC|
Any enquiries should be directed to the House Standing Committee once the inquiry is formally established. As of today (30th May 2012), the House Standing Committee has not yet been convened.
We have so many strong cases from the University - we can just let the facts speak for themselves. Let's see how they want submissions.
