Laws adapted to prevent and eliminate harassment in the workplace

Phetheni delved into the 2022 Code of Good Practice which introduced a wider definition of harassment including verbal bullying, demoting somebody without justification, abusing disciplinary processes, cyber bullying, passive aggression, condescending eye contact, just to name a few.
