      Employees against Intimidation in the Workplace

Many employees have been put under pressure to do things against the policies whithout knowlingly doing so. When they complained to upper management they were put in rooms harrassed, intimidated, belittled and forced to sign statements or threatened with their jobs. Once they did what they were told they were fired without their pay.

Sincerely,

      I was bullied very long time at work. By the employer was done nothing against it!

      The signs of workplace bullying

      If you feel as though you are experiencing bullying in the workplace, this can be a very devastating and distressing issue. You may be feeling very low and anxious at the thought of going to work and facing the individual or group that may be subjecting you to this. Workplace bullying can take shape or form in many different ways. You may be questioning whether what you are going through is workplace bullying and a lot of this depends on if you actually are feeling bullied or harassed by a particular individual or a group of people. There are many instances of bullying behaviour in the workplace, such as the following:

      workplace bullying

      Being constantly criticised, having duties and responsibility taken away without good reason

      Shouting, aggressive behaviour or threats

      Being put down or made to feel like the butt of the jokes

      Being persistently picked on in front of others or in private

      Being constantly ignored, victimised and excluded regularly

      Constantly mocking and attacking members of staff

      Spreading malicious rumours about members of staff

      Misuse of power or position to make someone feel uncomfortable or victimised

      Making threats about job security without any basis or substance

      Blocking promotion or progress within the workplace

      These are just a few signs of bullying and there are many more and it is dependent on the organisation or the industry too. Unfortunately, bullying can take its toll on your health and wellbeing. If you do feel that you are under duress, please do make an appointment with your GP so that you are able to get support for this. It is important to keep a diary of all incidents with times, dates, witnesses and what happened. This will help you enormously, especially if you decide to take this further.
