U.S. NATIONAL PREVALENCE in 2014
Workplace bullying is repeated mistreatment and a form of “abusive conduct.” For the first time, we used the definition of workplace bullying that matches perfectly the definition codified in the Healthy Workplace Bill.
Thus, we asked Americans to consider only the most serious forms of bullying. Eye rolling may be part of bullying, but it alone is not sufficient. Nonverbal cues coupled with verbal abuse and the tactics of exclusion are delivered by perpetrators repeatedly in order to intentionally harm targeted individuals. The closest analogy to workplace bullying is domestic violence. Bullying is a non-physical form of workplace violence.

If You Don’t Want Anti-Bullying Legislation, Give Me a ‘Hell Yeah!’
by Jon Hyman, Workforce Management, April 3, 2014
Bullying in the workplace isn’t illegal, unless it’s bullying because of some protected characteristic (sex, race, etc.). Yet, just because something is legal doesn’t mean it should be condoned.
According to Today’s General Counsel (citing the Workplace Bullying Institute’s 2014 US Workplace Bullying Survey), an astounding 72 percent of employees report that their employers have not done anything to curb bullying in the workplace.
The quickest way to ensure that generalized workplace bullying becomes illegal is for employers to continue to ignore it. If employees continued to report that they are being bullied, and that their employers are not doing anything to stop it, legislatures will step in and pass anti-bullying laws.
So, what should you do? Treat bullying like it’s illegal. Create a workplace culture in which bullying is not permitted to occur.
