One in three people have suffered at the hands of bullies at work, a survey has found. Daybreak's Katy Fawcett reports:
Jan Parkinson from the Employment Relations Institute has told Daybreak that there can be different forms of bullying in the work place.
She said: "Bullying can be around your gender, race, religion or making fun of somebody."
- Almost three-quarters of workers, 74 per cent, experienced verbal bullying.
- 4 out of 10 did nothing about the bullying.
- More than half (58 percent) felt isolated and unsupported by their line-manager.
- More than 1 in 10 people felt bullied were forced to leave their job as a result.
One in three people have suffered at the hands of bullies at work, a Daybreak survey has found.
Nearly half of those did absolutely nothing about it, letting the bullies get away with it.
At the other end of the scale though, 12% were forced to quit their job because of the bullying, the study said.
