CultureSafe NZ Ltd is a small Hamilton based company that is New Zealand’s leading anti workplace bullying organisation that does 90% of its work on a no win no fee basis because the majority of our clients are low income. The sole Director and shareholder Allan Halse works approx. 100 hours per week for about $5 per hour. Allan was a Nominee for the New Zealander of the Year Awards because of the tireless work he does on behalf of bullied New Zealand workers.

CultureSafe NZ Ltd is a threat to bad employers who breach the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015, and five employers have recently attempted, by committing the organisation to expensive litigation, to close the organisation down. These five organisations have unlimited access to taxpayer funds to use to bankrupt/liquidate CultureSafe NZ Ltd.

Allan's legal bill so far is up to $40,000, of which $11,000 has been paid largely thanks to hose who have donated to this Givealittle page (Allan's income last year was $25,000) defending against accusations being leveled at himself, CultureSafe NZ Ltd and an employee. The other lawyers in those cases are being publically funded but Allan's request for similar funding have been ignored.

I have set this fundraiser up with Allan's (reluctant) acceptance after numerous requests from followers on Facebook who wish to donate and help support his cause. As a victim of workplace bullying myself, I feel very strongly about the amazing work Allan is doing on behalf of other victims, including a friend of mine who was bullied at the same workplace as me. The lasting impact of this can be catastrophic for the victims and their families. My own family decided to move away from the lovely town where we lived as I could not find new work after I left that job, we could no longer afford our house and the strain on myself, my partner and our children was too much.

Please contribute if you can, or share this Givealittle page with your social networks so Allan can continue to fight the good fight against systemic and entrenched behaviour in NZ workplaces.

Auckland ERA and workplace bullying.  15 March 2019

CultureSafe NZ Ltd continues to campaign for the rights of bullied workers to be safe in their workplaces which is actually a legal right under the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015.

Sadly the Auckland ERA continues to support bullying employers and an Authority member, has fined CultureSafe NZ Ltd Director Alan Halse $52,000 to speaking publicly about their 13 clients (4 of whom experienced suicide ideation).

They have incorrectly claimed that Allan had breached a 5 March 2018 MBIE confidential settlement. Allan didn't and because he didn't he has maintained that the 13 non-publication orders that they were illegal and he continued to speak out about the bullying.

Allan will have additional legal costs to continue CultureSafe NZ Ltd's campaign against workplace bullying in New Zealand.
