Dr Gary Naime talks about Bullies in the workplace
Some interesting results from the Employment Law Alliance & America at Work Poll
Highlights of the poll include:
• 44% said they have worked for a supervisor or employer who they consider abusive.
• More than half of American workers have been the victim of, or heard about supervisors/employers behaving abusively by making sarcastic jokes/teasing remarks, rudely interrupting, publicly criticizing, giving dirty looks to, or yelling at subordinates, or ignoring them as if they were invisible.
• 64% said that they believe an abused worker should have the right to sue to recover damages.
• Southern workers (34%) are less likely to have experience with an abusive boss than are their Northeastern (56%) and Midwestern (48%) counterparts.
