Since 2002, when Bullying in the Workplace: An Occupational Hazard was first published, there has been little, if any, reduction in bullying behaviour. Despite more general awareness of the issue, bullying is still rife in schools and in the adult world, condoned and even encouraged in politics, in sport,
and in the workplace.
In this new edition, the authors explore workplace bullying, focusing particularly on psychological bullying, which is often done on the sly, without witnesses, and so is much more difficult to prove. This very practical, comprehensive and easy-to-read book summarizes the different types of workplace bully, the effects of bullying on employees and employers, the rights of employees and employers, avenues for conflict resolution, legal options for victims, survival strategies, and more.
