The Victorian Parliament has just passed historic anti-bullying legislation called Brodie’s law.

Workplace bullies across the state will now face up to 10 years in jail under changes to stalking laws introduced by state parliament today.

Brodie Panlock, 19, took her own life in 2006 after enduring daily bullying from colleagues at a Hawthorn cafe where she worked.

Four men were convicted and fined between $10,000 and $45,0000 each, under the Occupational Health and Safety Act. The owner of the cafe was fined $220,000.

The teenager’s death has prompted the amendment to the state’s stalking laws, known as Brodie’s law.
