In 2011 the Victorian Government made serious bullying a crime prompted by the suicide death of nineteen-year-old Brodie Panlock in 2006 as a result of relentless bullying from work colleagues at the Hawthorn cafe where she worked. Brodie’s death resulted in the Victorian Government passing a law, known as ‘Brodies Law’, making serious bullying punishable by up to ten years in jail. The Federal Government is now looking at creating a similar national law to protect workers from bullying throughout Australia.
