Saying "NO" to Workplace Bullying.
Bullying is escalating in workplaces throughout Australia and New Zealand, thriving on denial, misinformation, myth and the silencing of those who try to speak out.
This Website aims to:
- break the silence on workplace bullying
- provide information to challenge workplace bullies
- validate the experiences of those targeted by a bully
- establish links with other websites tackling bullying
- suggest resources and support organisations for the targets of bullies
- provide information for employers and unions to assist in the creation of a bully free work environment.
- reduce the incidence of suicide as a result of Workplace Bullying. NEW!!!!!!
Who are the most guilty?.... Those who bully, or those who stand by and allow it to happen? ............Catherine Crout-Habel

Dr Tim Field will be making his first, and very brief, visit to Australia in early September, 2002. For further information about his seminars, please click on http://www.successunlimited.co.uk/bully/conf.htm#Emerald To receive monthly copies of his e-mail newsletter which covers issues related to bullying all over the world, please email him via the Bully OnLine website on http://www.successunlimited.co.uk
If you should be thinking about "blowing the whistle" its imperative that you read the advice from Ken McLeod. The Whistleblowers "home page" can be accessed by clicking HERE .
For those accessing this site because they've been targeted by a "workplace bully, have no idea why and have never
"blown the whistle", nor even thought to do so. .... Its important you read the profile of the person likely to be targeted on http://www.successunlimited.co.uk Dr Field's work is validated by calls to SAEBOW where most people targeted are
* good at their job
* committed to the "client", especially in areas of health/ education/ social work.
* willing to speak out about injustice.
* have demonstrated high levels of personal integrity vs financial reward.
Long to short - most people who contact SAEBOW to try to make sense of how their professional and then personal life has been blown apart, when just "doing my job", need to understand that although they may never have "blown the whistle" on mal-practice, mal-feaseance and possible corruption, nor even thought about it ..... the problem is that, given their "profile" of honesty, integrity, professionalism and committment, that in some organisations (operating in this global economy) these characterestics can be hugely threatening and so need to be removed as quickly as possible. Workplace bullying is the way to do this which mostly includes psychiatric ("hired guns") reports that claim the targeted person is unbalanced, paranoid and delusional. (and we accused the USSR of this sort of behaviour against their "dissidents"?) ....... So, I'm urging all targets of WPBullies to click on Ken McLeod's advise.
SOUTH AUSTRALIAN POLICE WHISTLEBLOWER, Tony Douglas Grosser, in a re-trial where Justice Duggan forced him to represent himself was, after an incredible 11 month trial, again found "guilty" by the Jury. (June 2002) The appeals processes throught the SA Supreme Court re: conviction and sentencing are proceeding. On Thursday, 15//8/2002, Justice Kirby of the "High Court of Australia" ruled that Mr Grosser's submission for "Special Leave to Appeal" which included a submission that Justice Duggan had erred in forcing Mr Grosser to represent himself in an 11 month trial, was proclaimed "premature" and needed to proceed through the SA Supreme Court first. Justice Kirby went to great lengths to explain that the High Court were not rejecting Mr Grosser's grounds for appeal and that if, after the SA Supreme Court judgement Mr Grosser still believe he had been unjustly treated, then he should appeal again to the High Court. (My words and my interpretation... When the transcript becomes available I will post to this forum).
In 1985, AVON LOVELL wrote THE MICKLEBERG STITCH, which exposed police corruption in their fabrication of evidence, to cause the conviction of the Mickleberg Brothers. Within a week the book was banned. Sgt Lewandowski has recently confessed that the book was correct. Avon Lovell has now been charged with Contempt of Court.

SAEBOW IS A "NOT FOR PROFIT" ORGANISATION. ALL WORK IS CONDUCTED BY VOLUNTEERS. THE INTENTION BEING TO PROVIDE INFORMATION TO HELP STOP THIS PARTICULAR FORM OF ABUSE. HEARTFELT THANKS TO THOSE WHO HAVE DONATED TO SAEBOW. WITHOUT YOUR GENEROSITY OF SPIRIT, THE COST OF PHOTOCOPYING, POSTAGE, PHONE CALLS, ISP HOURS ETC... COULD NOT HAVE BEEN MET. ... AND THE WORK COULD NOT CONTINUE.
