Abusive bosses who target employees with ridicule, public criticism, and the silent treatment not only have a detrimental effect on the employees they bully, but they negatively impact the work environment for the co-workers of those employees who suffer from “second-hand” or vicarious abusive supervision.

A recent survey has found that 60% of UK workers have been bullied by their boss, and three in ten (30%) workers claim that they are currently experiencing bullying at the office.

Cyberbullying – using modern communications technology such as e-mails, texts or web-postings to abuse people - is as common in the workplace as ‘conventional’ bullying. Yet, the way cyberbullying influences both the victim and witnesses are more hidden in the workplace according to new research by occupational psychologists.

The Law Society has warned that removing certain provisions from the Equality Act will not help employers. The warning comes after the government published a series of amendments to the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill this week.

Recent research has found that employers are failing to provide employees with guidance on company policy for dealing with stressful HR issues at work, risking both costly periods of employee absence, and in extreme cases, potential legal action.

New research has revealed that, over the past two years, around one million British workers experienced violence in the workplace, and many more were the victims of intimidation, humiliation and rudeness.

A survey by UNISON has revealed that six in ten workers across the UK have been bullied, or witnessed bullying, over the past six months.
