What type of behaviour could be classed as bullying?
Bullying can take many forms, but essentially it is a form of harassment involving the continuing intimidation or belittling of an individual verbally and/or physically.
The TUC has discovered through surveys they have conducted that those responsible for bullying at work include fellow workers and not just management.
Sometimes bullying at work has a clear collective dimension, affecting not just you but your colleagues too. Examples might include abusive manipulation of people’s contracts – such as forcing you to accept worse terms and conditions or difficult shift patterns, making you come to work when you're sick, or bullying to deter you from joining a union or engaging in trade union activities.
