Employers nationwide increasingly have had to implement policies to handle concerns beyond typical workplace dilemmas –– or what’s now called workplace bullying.
This week, the University of Minnesota’s Office of Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action held a session about the issue to ensure staff and faculty know how to recognize and address it.
The University’s Office of Human Resources defines bullying as an imbalance of power and the intent to cause harm and repetition. It is not outlined in Minnesota state laws like harassment or discrimination.

Gary Namie (Ph.D., Social Psychology) and Ruth Namie (Ph.D., Clinical Psychology) started the U.S. workplace bullying movement in mid-1997 after Ruth’s personal experience at the hands of a tyrannical woman supervisor in a psychiatry clinic.
The Drs. Namie began the first and only U.S. research, education, advocacy and consulting organization — the Workplace Bullying Institute (WBI, workplacebullying.org) now in Bellingham, Washington. Their current books areThe Bullying-Free Workplace (2011, Wiley) for employers and The Bully At Work (2009, Sourcebooks) for bullied individuals. WBI regularly conducts research, including the scientific 2010 & 2007 U.S. Workplace Bullying Surveys and online large sample studies.

By Janice Crompton, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette: Thursday, April 21, 2011
When Tom Shannon accepted a job 15 years ago, he expected to raise his family and retire after a long, satisfying career.
But instead, the 51-year-old information technology specialist from Butler County found himself confronted with what he describes as an alcoholic, abusive supervisor who, he said, eventually drove him from his job — and nearly out of his mind.

Nancy Sadie of Ambridge is not easily intimidated, but a bully tested her limits in her last job.
A co-worker at the former Bellevue Suburban General Hospital where Sadie was a staff nurse from 2000 to 2003 frequently became confrontational, she said.
“She was really rude. She would bark at you,” said Sadie, 58, who recalled that when she returned to work after an excused two-hour absence for a friend’s funeral, the bully “went ballistic and chewed me out really good.”
There is no law — state or federal — against such conduct, legal experts say, giving victims little recourse other than to leave the job.
