The Tyranny of the Queen Bee
By Peggy Drexler, Wall Street Journal, March 1, 2013
Kelly was a bright woman in her early 30s: whip-smart, well qualified, ambitious—and confused. Even a little frightened.
She worked for a female partner in a big consulting firm. Her boss was so solicitous that Kelly hoped the woman—one of just a few top female partners—might become her mentor. But she began to feel that something was wrong. In meetings, her boss would dismiss her ideas without discussion and even cut her off in mid-sentence. Kelly started to hear about meetings to which she wasn’t invited but felt she should be. She was excluded from her boss’s small circle of confidants.

UNPAID LEAVE A REALITY FOR MANY
WBI 2013-A Instant Poll
Individuals who are bullied at work can suffer stress. With prolonged exposure, that stress can trigger stress-related diseases. Health complications follow. At some point, those individuals are adversely affected and work suffers. It becomes apparent to them, coworkers, and family members that leave from work should be taken to allow for health recovery.
Leave options for American workers include taking paid sick leave, filing for workers compensation, taking family medical leave or seeking disability insurance. Only 23% of private-sector employers offer at least one day of paid sick leave. There is no national mandate for employers to provide paid sick leave in the U.S.

NEW YORK (CAP) – A new survey by Forbes Magazine finds more and more American companies shipping unheralded office tasks such as workplace bullying and sexual harassment to offshore resources in order to cut down on U.S. labor costs.
“It doesn’t make sense for me to have that one guy who makes your job a living hell sitting in an office in Manhatten when everyone he interacts with is working remotely,” said one Fortune 500 CEO. “I can get a guy in India to harass you over the phone for half that cost.”

Bullying is very much a part of business these days. Those bullies in middle school and high school grew up and are waiting right around the corner for their next target. It’s disheartening but true — in some circumstances bullying is legal.
According to The Workplace Bullying Institute, a nonprofit organization dedicated to understanding, correcting and preventing all abuse at work, bullying is four times more prevalent than illegal harassment.

Taming the Workplace Bully, By Adam Piore, Bloomberg BusinessWeek, November 21, 2012
It started during the training sessions for her new job. Elizabeth Santeramo, a cancer information specialist in New York, saw a woman across the room glance in her direction, whisper in the ear of a co-worker, and then snort derisively. The episode seemed so brazenly immature, as if plucked directly from Mean Girls, that Santeramo shrugged it off. “The work we were doing was to help people who were just diagnosed with cancer,” she says. “We’re all empathic, compassionate people, I told myself. I’m just being paranoid.” A few days later, the abusive snickering intensified.
