Trends in the Workplace: Bullying on the rise? - Workscape
This is my first post. It's more of a comment than a question; however, at a later date, I shall create another thread on a similar, but more specific subject unless it would be more appropriate in this thread. I've been hearing quite a bit lately how our HR Department is receiving a lot more grievances from employees on matters of harassment (including bullying) against managers. Yet, due to the nature of the [grievance] process and how management at all levels tend be bias, 99% of the harassment cases are denied. Accordingly, bullying is not being addressed.
