Bullying by a co-worker

Have you ever felt as though a colleague has treated you inappropriately at work in California? If so, you are sadly not alone. Forbes indicates that a researcher from the University of Phoenix suggests that nearly three-fourths of all workers in America have experienced some type of bullying at work. Additionally, this bullying may happen from people in a range of positions from those above you to those below you as well as from your own peers.

Just what is workplace bullying? It can involve any type of behavior that is abusive in nature, especially if it is repeated or ongoing. It may even get worse over time. It is often something that people who feel threatened by the success of others do. This may happen perhaps as a way of compensating for what some believe to be their own shortcomings. It may be the alternative some choose to working harder to succeed.

Left unchecked, people who are the targets of this bullying may experience such high levels of stress that they can even get sick. An overall toxic company culture can emerge that drags others down as well. Bullying might be intended to intimidate, humiliate or sabotage another person or their work and their results. Often very highly talented people become the targets for this type of harassment.
