Complaints of harassment, discrimination and bullying can prove costly to employers. If a complaint is made to a tribunal, employers are faced with the potential cost of damages if found directly or vicariously liable for harassment or discrimination.

There are also the legal costs of representation, the cost of settling a complaint if appropriate and the time spent by employees and managers in tribunals. Another possible consequence of a discrimination complaint is negative publicity for the organisation and its management. Bullying and harassment in the workplace can also amount to work health and safety violations if the behaviour leads to an unsafe working environment, and/or claims to the Fair Work Commission.
