What Every Target of Workplace Bullying Needs to Know

Bullied Baker Needs Advise

Hi, I have been bullied in the workplace for the last 6 month by my supervisor. There is no yelling or screaming just alot of nit-picking. You see I am not the head baker where I work I am the assistant to him. The bully does not get along with the head baker so I get alot of the criticism. A lot of this is the fault of the head baker. I am a qualified baker he is not.

For 6 months as soon as I go into my place of work this bully singles me out and everyday its constant nit picking. He is calling me lazy when it is not warranted. This constant bullying has led to panic attacks, high heart rate and blood pressure. The bullying usual starts at the beginning of the shift. I work 12 hour shifts so I am so upset I can't eat and concentrate on my work properly.

I was told by the company I work for to see a company doctor as they were concerned about the amount of time I was missing at work etc. I have confronted the bully numerous times telling him to stop it. With no luck. I have told the other boss also. He just kept saying work it out with him.

HR didn't take me seriously when I told them of my claims of bullying. I have received negative e-mail from the head baker I work with. Its like the whole place is against me when none of this is my fault.

I continue to have panic attacks plus not sleeping well and my blood pressure continues to be high and I have decided not to go back. I have thought of getting a lawyer, as the HR guy said he would get to the bottom of this but I haven't heard anything yet.

I feel all alone in this. I have had to get a second opinion from another doctor as he didn't take me serious either. My Councellor I am seeing plus my family are the only ones who believe that this is really happening to me. Thanks.
