Fifty-one percent (51%) of organizations experience workplace bullying. One in 5 workers are bullied each week. Twenty-two percent (22%) resign rather than reporting. Eighty-one percent (81%) of employers are doing nothing to address bullying. Not only can workplace bullying create a toxic work environment it could lead to employees being prosecuted. In this presentation, we will discuss what is workplace bullying, what are its effects, how to deal with it, and what does the law say.
