BARRIERS TO WORKPLACE BULLIED TARGETS
LEAVING THEIR JOBS
WBI 2013-C Instant Poll
One of the criticisms leveled against individuals targeted for workplace bullying is that they should “just” quit. That simplistic advice is cruel and short-sighted. Quitting is not a simple decision. Consider for a moment the single parent target. What will replace the lost income?
We at WBI who have talked to thousands of targets over the years by phone and in-person know there are other barriers to leaving a toxic work environment, regardless of how damaging that job and employer are to the target’s health. It is never easy to leave, to escape to safety.
This survey asks target-respondents to evaluate which two barriers listed convinced them to not leave.

Bullied targets plead for relief from stress-related health and mental health injuries (up to and including PTSD). They are certainly bothered by the pain, once they connect the dots and realize that it is the exposure to abuse that causes it. Moreso, they are incensed by the injustice, the unfairness, of it all. It’s an upside-down work world where the ingratiating do-nothing predators torment with impunity. It’s not a fair world. That stark realization does untold damage to the target’s worldview. In turn, that violation of assumptions forces them to redefine who they are at the core. Bullying is a life-changing series of events, and in most cases, not ending in a better world for the target.
