The economic climate is creating perfect conditions for workplace bullying to move into more ‘ruthless’ territory, according to an expert.

    I agree with everything written here, however I have repeatedly witnessed employees bullied and threatened by HR. Not much you can do when it comes from them.

    In Manitoba, there is no requirement that HR practitioners be regulated, and no recourse for employees who have made formal complaints that were not responded to with a credible investigation. HR practitioners with integrity should be lobbying for increased accountability that includes an element of professionalism rather than being satisfied that their work is being devalued and discredited by irresponsible and unaccountable practitioners.

    This is a good, informative article! I'm glad the author, Ben Abbott, mentioned how employees who bully others are using subtle methods.

    The covert, subtle methods of bullying others in the workplace is just as destructive and stressful as the obvious methods. It could be even more stressful because hardly anyone else will notice it. If you are treated in such a way, your colleagues might not believe you if you tell them.

    I became so concerned about the effects of this type of bullying that I wrote a book to help the targets titled "Not All Bullies Yell and Throw Things: How to Survive a Subtle Workplace Bully".

    It is available in Kindle format on Amazon.ca

    BTW, you don't need a Kindle to read Kindle books! Amazon has a free app that you can download to any device (PC, tablet, phone, etc.) to use to read Kindle books. See this link for Amazon's free app:

    No one should have to tolerate being bullied at work, not in subtle ways and not even during a tight economy!
