Where can we find legal information to include in our bullying and drug and alcohol polices?
Question: My company, which is based in South Australia, is currently drafting a workplace bullying policy and a drug and alcohol policy, and I would like some help with two areas:
1. In the bullying policy, I would like to include the legal definition of bullying. Could you please advise where in the Work Health and Safety Act or other legislation I can find the definition?
2. In the drug and alcohol policy, I would like to state the legal instrument that allows employers to ask workers to undertake random alcohol and drug testing. What legislation is this in?
