What Every Target of Workplace Bullying Needs to Know

I Am Bullied And It Is Affecting Me

by Mano
(Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia)

I am working for a well reputed organization. My supervisor is a bully. She use verbal abuse, insulting comments and body language to put me down all the time.

I have spoken to her boss and she has dealt with it as a conflict resolution case instead of a bullying and workplace harassment case.

Her boss loves her and can not afford to lose her because she gets the work done through her bullying.

My work is widely appreciated in the organization. Everyone respects me except my supervisor. I have written to HR but my boss's boss intervened and settled the issue.

I feel I am in claws; I suffer everyday. I have lost interest in anything. My health is suffering, I have panic attacks and breakdowns. I even had a suicidal thought a couple of weeks ago. She has gotten on my nerves.

The bullying started after I filed a complaint against my manager for verbal abuse. There were the constant calling me into the office everyday that I worked to issue some type of criticism. Then came bogus complaints issued against me. The faulty disciplines that were issued. I had to start seeing a therapist and getting on depression meds. I reached out to Human Resources and was told that they will keep this information for their investigation (that never seemed to happen). Others witnessed her behavior.

It got so bad that I ended up resigning. I reach out to our corporate headquarters and was told that nothing was done wrong to me.
