What Every Target of Workplace Bullying Needs to Know


by Sarah
(Oxford, UK)

Our new line manager is 29. I am a 50-year-old woman. He obviously has "issues" with women my age: a female colleague and I are being bullied out of our jobs. We have been falsely accused of financial and professional misdemeanours and threatened with disciplinary procedures. Both of us have unblemished professional reputations. I am much more highly qualified than the bully and have 20 years' more experience (including in management). We are suffering from insomnia, crying bouts and terror of losing our jobs. Other staff members are also being subjected to bullying, including the ex-line manager (who went back to teaching). We don't know what to do.
