What is workplace bullying

Posted on

Bullying is a pattern of negative behaviour that creates distress in another person, whether intended or not. It includes shouting at colleagues, using sarcastic put-downs, repeated criticism of a person’s work, physical abuse, unfair sanctions and impossible deadlines, spreading rumours, removing responsibilities from a person and replacing them with trivial tasks, withholding necessary information and excluding people from relevant meetings.
