Disgusting Case of Bullying Results in $12,500 Fine for Perpetrator


A Geelong builder has been fined $12.500 for repeatedly bullying an apprentice at his company.

WorkSafe Victoria said the man bullied his teenage apprentice verbally, physically and psychologically over a 2 year period until the young man left in April 2015.

The young man was repeatedly harassed and bullied by the carpenter and other employees, who he encouraged to bully the apprentice as well.

Some extreme and disgusting incidents of bullying were mentioned in the court, but the apprentice said the worst was the psychological abuse which still worries today.
