Bullying at work can take many forms – some can be directed at you personally, others relate to work activities

There is no legal definition of workplace bullying. However, experts believe that bullying involves negative behaviour being targeted at an individual, or individuals, repeatedly and persistently over time.

Negative behaviour

Negative behaviour includes:

  • Ignoring or excluding you
  • Giving you unachievable tasks or ’setting you up to fail’
  • Spreading malicious rumours or gossip
  • Giving you meaningless tasks or unpleasant jobs
  • Making belittling remarks
  • Undermining your integrity
  • Withholding information deliberately
  • Making you look stupid in public
  • Undervaluing your contribution –not giving credit where it is due

Here's some more information about workplace bullying, and how to deal with it:
