Province: B.C. government employees get new agreement to combat the bullying in their midst

The nightmare at work started with one manager taking a personal dislike to her and nitpicking everything she did — from the way she dressed to the “irritating” tone of her voice.

Other managers joined in and discipline notes were placed on her personnel file, for things like talking to her son on the phone during work hours. Her son is autistic.

But the worst phase of the office bullying began when her own co-workers started to isolate and harass her. At a staff Christmas party, she was given a card with sexual content that suggested she slept with all the men in the office.

Everyone laughed, and she tried to laugh, too. But, on the inside, she was in despair.
