“Systemic bullying, hazing and abuse generally are identified with poor, weak or toxic organizational cultures. Cultures that are toxic have stated ethical values that are espoused but not employed, and other non-ethical values which are operational, dominant, but unstated.

Such cultures thrive when good people are silent, silenced, or pushed out; when bad apples are vocal, retained, promoted, and empowered; and when the neutral majority remain silent in order to survive. Those who are most successful in such a toxic culture are those who have adapted to it, or adopted it as their own”. (McKay, Arnold, Fratzl & Thomas, 2008)

"Clothing retailer to pay more than $235,000 in damages for workplace bullying"

Clothing retailer Sussan has had to pay over $235,000 to an employee because of workplace bullying.

195 people have reported their bullying experiences at the University of Newcastle to us

If ONLY ONE HUNDRED of those 195 who reported bullying to us got a payout from the University of Newcastle (like Sussan had to do), the Uni would have to pay out $23,500,000 ($235,000 X 100).
No wonder the uni spends so much on legal expertise - the cost of barristers and solicitors would be small compared to this.

23,500,000 reasons for the University of Newcastle to destroy those people who report bullying, harassment and victimisation.

  1. For anyone reading this. I have heard that the University of Newcastle is actually getting so unstable and dangerous that there are students at severe risk. Beware.
