    My boss just terminated a lady in our office who had only been there a couple of months. Three of the employees under this lady never took a liking to her. I share an office with my boss so I have been privy to a lot of conversations about this matter. The thing is, these...

    Feeling Empowered Again After having been

    absent from my workplace for several months, and facing the possible necessity of having to return to it, I have had time and space to think over the bullying that happened there, why it happened, who was behind it and what they want to achieve. Before I go back, I wanted to...

    Bullied At My Job...

    Here's a long one for you EP. About two weeks ago, I had a serious heat stroke. I had nausea, fever, chills, vomiting, and I had passed out a couple times. I found out that my health insurance barely covers me at any medical facility I could go to, and so I basically had to sweat...

    The Scourge Of Workplace Bullying

    It is perpetrated by people who feel threatened by others. They feel they have a certain position in the workplace and when someone comes along who seems more competent or more intelligent, it becomes their mission to thwart and undermine that person as much as they can.  They...

    I find it absolutely disgusting to say the

    How To Turn Workplace Bullying/ Prejudice To Your Advantage?

    Nope, I have no idea how to. I am a victim myself. In fact I was a victim today, for the umpteenth time. As much I got angry, abusive, irritated, disappointed, demotivated, used, fooled, prejudiced, lost in thought, feeling sad about my life, not given due recognition that I...

    This woman at work bullies me

    and no matter what I say or do, she doesn't stop it. I don't know how to deal with her anymore. She tells me what to do even though she's not my boss. Her tone of voice is angry and aggressive. There have been a number of times when she has come up and said to me "Sunburst, you...

    Insight Please?

    My manager constantly swears at people in a degrading manner. He has been known to let his wrath out on people. He just comes up to you in the middle of the office - open plan - and starts calling you an F-ing C* and such names with no constructiveness to it at all. No 'you've...

    I Hate Bullying

    When I was at school I suffered a lot from bullying and it left me with a deep hatred for it. Whenever I see it at work I get very angry and I've been in a few fights over it. Unfortunately, administration sometimes prefers to turn a blind eye rather than admit there is a problem...

    I was bullied out of a job.

    Was made fun of by the ******* in my office
