Public awareness of workplace bullying has never been higher, thanks to high-profile cases such as the one involving Miami Dolphins teammates Richie Incognito and Jonathan Martin. Yet none of the more than two dozen states that have taken up the issue has actually passed any legislation to tackle the problem.
A recent survey found that 93 percent of Americans support legislation that would offer protections against bullying at work. The survey, conducted by Zogby Analytics for the Workplace Bullying Institute, found that 27 percent of Americans report having experienced abusive conduct at work. Another 21 percent say they have witnessed such behavior. Overall, 72 percent of those surveyed said they were aware of the issue of workplace bullying.
“Everybody has a story,” said Gary Namie, co-founder and director of the Workplace Bullying Institute. “It is an epidemic. When you count witnesses, 65 million people in the workforce know firsthand what (bullying) is about.”
The Incognito-Martin case brought workplace bullying into the spotlight.
Martin accused Incognito of bullying him, and then left the team. A lawyer hired by the National Football League to investigate the matter recently released a report concluding that Incognito “engaged in a pattern of harassment” of Martin.
Namie and his Bellingham, Wash.-based institute have been working on the issue for more than 20 years, but he said that the Incognito-Martin case caused “a tectonic shift.”

A new study from the UK Federation of Entertainment Unions found that workplace bullying, along with harassment and discrimination, is major issue in the creative industries.
The report took center stage at the Creating without Conflict conference in London on November 19, 2013. Along with the survey results the Unions called for confidential hotlines to help their bullied members, as well as better training for management.
From The Stage
These findings come from a survey, Creating Without Conflict, compiled by the Federation of Entertainment Unions, which includes Equity, the Writers’ Guild of Great Britain, the Musicians’ Union, BECTU and the National Union of Journalists. Its aim was to assess how widespread bullying, harassment and discrimination is in the entertainment and media industries, with more than 4,000 people from across the different unions taking part. Respondents included household names and top screenwriters, as well as people at the beginning of their careers.

WBI – 2013 – Discovery Survey
At WBI over the years, we have been called by nearly 10,000 individuals seeking answers to their questions about their irrational and destructive workplace bullying experiences. In our 3-step Target Action Plan, the first step begins with an acknowledgment that the abusive conduct was perpetrated by others external to themselves. That step typically is the first time a name is given to the assaults that comprise bullying.
Corrective actions all depend on that initial recognition. In this survey we asked targets of, and witnesses to, the bullying to describe the timing of the recognition of the label for their experiences and its source.

A WBI Affiliate asks for your help if you work in K-12 American schools:
Please complete this survey that is part of my Doctoral dissertation through Aurora University, Aurora, IL.
The topic is “ A Systems Approach to Workplace Bullying in the K-12 Public Education Setting”.
Participants are invited to complete the survey regarding their observations or experiences in any of the roles in workplace bullying in the school setting. The opportunity to participate in an interview (either in person or by phone) regarding the experiences is available by providing the information at the end of the survey. Non-American respondents are not eligible for an interview at this time.
Thank you for helping.

2012 WBI Instant Poll – B
Using our Instant Poll capability here at the WBI website, we asked 311 respondents (98% of whom are self-declared targets of bullying):
Does (did) your employer have a specific policy prohibiting workplace bullying? [It can be part of another policy, but there must be protections for everyone, regardless of sex, age, religion, etc.]
