What Every Target of Workplace Bullying Needs to Know

Mentally Bullied by Management

by John
(Durham, England)

I am 54 years old and I have worked for a well-known pharmacy as a prescription delivery and collection driver for over 9 years. For the past approximately 6 or 7 years I have endured snide comments, been sworn at in front of other members, and humiliated in front of staff.

I'm constantly allocated unachievable routes, sometimes by over 1 hour, and am regularly unable to take an unpaid break—not even able to take a toilet break.

I have raised a grievance, which took 7 months to complete. Snide comments, bullying, and late finishing times were denied. Basically, the company stood by the team coordinator and manager.

They have driven me into the ground. I have told them that what the company is doing to me is inhumane. They still deny what they are doing to me, and I am stuck between a rock and a hard place and suffering badly with stress and anxiety.

I have found that there is no one there for me. Neither the company nor the union which let me down badly with the grievance.

I find that I have no one to turn to and I am feeling as though I have no choice but to leave a job that I once loved all because my team coordinator and manager are bullies.

Do not allow them to destroy because that is their plan. Those actions speak to who they are and "not" who you are.

Continue to speak out with other avenues just as you did hear as there is strength in telling your story.

Sadly, bullying is not illegal unless you can tie the actions to discrimination. Take a look and EEOC website further information. Also, start documenting daily activity with dates, names, times and if anyone witness the conversation. DO NOT leave anything in your desk if you have one - "always" take documentation home for safeguard as you may need it should you decide to file a lawsuit.
