Issa should be embarassed by his bullying conduct

Friday, March 7th, 2014

US Congressman Darrell Issa, chair of the House Oversight Committee bullied fellow Congressman Elijah Cummings and below is the video record of it recorded by C-SPAN. Issa allowed no one to testify at this Wed. March 5 hearing held to humiliate former IRS worker Lois Lerner who invoked her 5th Amendment right to not give self-incriminating answers to Issa’s questions. Rep. Cummings had something to say, but Rep. Issa turned off his microphone twice. Issa adjourned the hearing while the outraged Cummings attempted to speak.

Bullied targets have borne the brunt of a bully’s contempt similar to that demonstrated by Issa.

Workplace Bullying is not incivility or mere disrespect

Wednesday, April 25th, 2012

What’s in a name? Plenty of power to change.

We at WBI have long recognized that bullied targets cannot even begin to reverse their situation until they acknowledge that their work lives have been severely interrupted by the bullying. They have to name this “thing” that is happening so there is a reason to take action.

Call it workplace bullying or abusive conduct or psychological violence or workplace aggression or mobbing or personal harassment, but call it something other than acceptable behavior (e.g., just management “style” or “personality clash”). Give it a strong name to match the seriousness of the impact on your life.

New national British Survey sheds light on workplace bullying and violence

Thursday, November 3rd, 2011

The British Workplace Behaviour Survey released this week at the Festival of Social Sciences in London is a 21-question instrument designed to cover a 2-year period in respondents’ lives. It was administered to 3,979 employees in home, face-to-face interviews. The representative (and thus scientific) survey explored prevalence of a wide range of behaviors that comprise “ill treatment” in the UK workplace. This is a major study with several significant findings, including conclusions about why employers do so little to eliminate it.

“Ill treatment” included: unreasonable treatment (reported by 47%), denigration and disrespect (40%), 33% experienced both unreasonable treatment and denigration and disrespect, and 6% experienced violence.
