What can I do about being bullied at work?

There is a lot you can do. You don't have to put up with being bullied. We suggest that you talk to someone, get advice and find out about your rights at work. When you are better informed, you can then decide what to do. A useful practical step you can take is to start keeping a journal logging the incidents as they happen, setting out your best recollections of what happened, what was said when, who was there and so on. If bullying is by email or via a social media page like Facebook, print it off or take a screengrab.
