What is a exit package?

An exit package is when both the employer and employee come to a mutual agreement for the employment agreement to come to an end quickly and without a lot of delay or expense.

Typically, an exit package will contain some type of financial benefit for the employee, sometimes including a reference.

We can assist with ensuring the process is dealt with on a professional level and the agreed terms will be recorded in a record of settlement.

What does an exit package cost?

The cost of an exit package will depend on the length of time it takes to reach the final decision between employee and employer.

We can usually get your fees paid for by the employer, this is part of the negotiation process.

What did Harvey do?

 

Harvey Weinstein

He did what people in power have done for centuries. He used and exploited those who worked for him and those who wanted to work for him, to serve his own need.
 

He harassed, he bullied, he coerced and then he threatened anyone who dared to challenge his behaviour. 

 
The result for Harvey Weinstein has been life changing. There is not a person in the developed world who doesn’t know what it is alleged that he has done. The reputational damage caused by this scandal, will be long-lasting and potentially indefinite. Needless to say, life for that Harvey, will never be the same. 
 

If only the repercussions in the New Zealand employment world for bullying in the workplace were so public, so easy to verify (the strength in the Weinstein case was the number of women who came forward with the same claims) and the justice so swift.

 
Unfortunately it’s not, and the burden of proof in organisational bullying and/or harassment cases often rests with the employee who (we recognise) is starting from a position of trauma (with the good faith in their organisational relationship in tatters), and who must then try to construct a join-the-dots of what happened, of who said what and when. 
 
Thankfully, the shining light in the workplace bullying landscape is WorkSafe who have ensured that employees and employers are finally getting better “bullying in the workplace” resources.
 
WorkSafe NZ have developed a “bullying in the workplace toolbox”  and includes a checklist of behaviour and action examples which can help individuals identify whether the experiences they are having in their workplace, might be considered bullying. 
 
WorkSafe have also helped to define what bullying is (repeated and unreasonable behaviour directed towards a worker or a group of workers that can lead to physical or psychological harm).
 
They have also defined repeated behaviour (persistent (occurs more than once) and can involve a range of actions over time) and unreasonable behaviour (actions that a reasonable person in the same circumstances would see as unreasonable. It includes victimising, humiliating, intimidating or threatening a person).
 
For a bullying claim to have any chance of success, an employee must show that the behaviour they experienced meets this criteria. The more specific the examples and details, the greater the likelihood of success. 
 
A question we may pose in this situation is “what is the worst thing your organisation has done to you?” as the starting point in our conversation with you about your experiences at work. This is not to say that there is always a “worst thing” and we recognise that your experience might be a lot of little things repeated over time.
 
What we do understand and what we focus on, is how these actions make you feel. 
 

Employee claims of organisational bullying are not easy. They are difficult for both employees and employers.

The initial conversations can often be difficult and emotional and this is where our advocates can lend their support and expertise. 
 
The process may not be straightforward and can vary depending upon individual circumstances, but our advocates can talk you through the steps of the process and the types of outcomes you may expect.
 

Our advocates are more than happy to talk through your situation and identify what we can do to help and support you. 

 
One final thought about the Weinstein scandal and the saddest part for me, is the number of people who knew what was going on and stood idly by. Bullying within organisations can be the same, and the chances are, that if you are being bullied at work, that you are not the only one.
 
On the flipside, you may not be the recipient of bullying behaviour, but if you know someone that is, will you also stand idly by?
