STOP Bullying At All Workplaces
My former workplace was a mental health clinic, filled with mental health professionals. Very ironic that workplace bullying happened here.
One male supervisor was not stopped by top management and the carnage began. First one person was fired; then a person quit; then someone took extended medical leave. Another person quit; numerous medical symptoms including migraine headaches, high blood pressure, elevated glucose levels and more sick days.
It was a textbook case of bullying; but while I was inside the organization I had no idea what was actually happening and thought it was my fault. My fervent hope is that more national attention and education can gradually eliminate the "silent epidemic."
I see this as another "squeeze" on the middle class and the outcome of "Act 10" legislation that erases workplace protections. Thank you.
