Bullying In A Community Center
(Bayonne, NJ, US)
Recently I have been a target of bullying in the work place I've been called things like "too nice, phony, sneaky etc" When I first started working at my job I felt as if my co-workers were my second family. I spend half the day with them and they all seemed so friendly. Little did I know they were all talking about me behind my back jealousy could of been the target I'm not really sure.
One day I was called into a director's office and said that it was bought to her attention by a very "reliable source" that I had been looking through my bosses desk but the source would not be named and I was told if it happened again I'd be fired. But I did not understand why the only person who had seen me do this was that source mind you there are cameras everywhere I work because I work with children and its a precaution. Cameras didn't capture me nothing did then I spoke to my boss and he said that the person who informed the director had been a part of the company for years since they had been an infant.
My coworkers continued to talk negatively of me and I was constantly being harassed at work. I informed my boss he said he could not do anything because the coworkers who literally me had been there longer than he could not confront them.
Two weeks later a coworker of mine said that I had been speaking negatively about her daughter. She literally stood no less than 2 inches in front of my face and directly humiliated me in front of all the children I work with. I broke into tears. I later talked to my boss once again and he said this too shall pass. It's a constant issue and I do not know what to do. I'm stressed out and I cry a lot more often. It's becoming mentally unhealthy for me.
