    Workplace Bullying

    In my experience, WorkSafeBC provides little comfort when investigating Workplace Bullying claims. One of the investigator stated that, "If we can't control bullying in our workplace how do you think we can do anything about your wife's?" Needless to say I asked him to be removed...

    My supervisor was a ****.

    I was part-time at a busy retail store based near my college. I was doing minimal hours - occasionally 16 hours a week. The pay was poor, but it got me by. My supervisor, let's call him Shaun, would occasionally call me useless, criticise my work and would give me the most...

    For twenty years I had been supported

    Any kind of bullying isn't right. They are all wrong... But cyberbullying is just worse. Be a bully and just hurt someone through the net (and then, run)? Pfff, such a coward.
