What is workplace bullying and harassment?
According to the organization Workplace Bullying Institute (WBI), if the answer is yes to any of these questions, you are a victim of bullying which they define as a "repeated, health-harming mistreatment of one or more persons (the targets) by one or more perpetrators".
While at this time there is no federal or state law that prohibits this type of treatment, bullying is illegal when it violates federal or state laws prohibiting discrimination and harassment on the job. As an employee, you cannot be harassed or discriminated against due to your sex, race, color, religion, national origin, disability, or age.
If you are a victim of workplace discrimination due to one of these protected characteristics, it's important to contact a lawyer for legal counsel.
