    Isolated And Ignored

    I started working at my job towards the end of February of this year. I love and enjoy what I do, and it feels great to know it makes a positive difference in the lives of others. In the first few months, I went in with no stress and felt comfortable around my coworkers. Everyone...

    Wrongful Termination?

    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...

    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...

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

    today. How can I not be depressed? Apart from people difficult to work with in my own team, I have been tolerating gossip targeting me from ******* of another team but sitting next to me, for 8 months already, almost every day. I want to quit. No more excuse to stay.

    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 was bullied out of a job.

    I only had it for two weeks too. It was one of those annoying 'sales' jobs where the company you work for is outsourced to fundraise for charities and organisations and such. The system was weird and I personally would have done it differently. Anyway, this girl hated me for...

    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...

    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...
