Have you ever been bullied in the workplace?
With all the emphasis on school bullying today, lets not forget that their are also bullies in the workplace.
Not really in the workplace because it can be fairly easy to deal with bullying in the workplace. Sometimes, too, in the workplace it can be effective to nip bullying in the bud when it first happens (or starts to look like it's happening). On the other hand, I generally live with quite a bit of verbal/emotional bullying as an adult but outside any workplace. For the most part these days, it's not verbal violence; but bullying can be more subtle than "verbal violence".
Yes, I was. I was bullied daily by my employer after I let her know that I had been diagnosed with cancer. I continued to work and fulfill my work responsibilities, but she made comments each day to the effect of "When you quit, make sure and give us two weeks notice" or often making fun of my loss of hair. I needed the job, and so I didn't say anything at the time. I later found out that that workplace had a history of harassing people with cancer. So yes, it does happen.
