Bullying often involves an abuse of power. While bullying can be an isolated incident it is often repeated. “Discrimination” means any conduct which makes distinctions between an individual or a group so as to disadvantage some and to advantage others, or treats an individual or a group less favourably than others, on the basis or because of an attribute or status they possess (for example, sex, race, religious belief, sexual preference, political opinion). “Harassment” means any offensive, belittling or threatening behaviour directed at an individual or group which takes place in circumstances in which any reasonable person, having regard to the circumstances, would have been offended, humiliated or intimidated.

Sexual harassment is included in this definition and is one particularly serious form of harassment. It occurs where the harassment involves conduct of a sexual nature. In addition to sexual harassment people may experience harassment because of their belief systems, including political or religious beliefs or activities, cultural, racial, or socio-economic background, gender, sexual orientation, parental status, physical features or disability, among other things. “Victimisation” means any unfavourable treatment of a person who has made a complaint, or allegation, about a breach of this Code of Conduct, whether the complaint was written or oral and irrespective of whether the person asked for the complaint to be conciliated or investigated. “Vilification” means any form of conduct not undertaken reasonably and in good faith that: a. incites hatred against, serious contempt for, or revulsion or severe ridicule of another person or class of person on the grounds of their race, religious beliefs or practises; or b. is done because of the race of another person and is reasonably likely to offend, insult, humiliate that other person.
