What is bullying?
Bullying’s core elements of the definition include unwanted aggressive behavior; observed or perceived power imbalance; and repetition of behaviors or high likelihood of repetition. If bullying is tied to a protected category, such as age, disability, race or other protected class, then it may constitute unlawful harassment. Bullying should be addressed in the Employee Handbook, as well as management should communicate by actions and support of policies that bullying is not allowed in the workplace. The internet site, www.stopbullying.gov, focuses on children bullying but the information is applicable to the workplace as well.
