Workplace Bullying: Who Is Vulnerable?
I just wrote about workplace bullying in my weekly Above The Law column, and focused on what type of workplaces foster bullying – and who is “vulnerable.”
“The workplace is like a second household, and your colleagues can be like a second family. But families are often dysfunctional – and we know that harassment and bullying occur in the workplace all too frequently.
But some people at work happen to be more vulnerable than others, and the nature of some workplaces makes them more conducive to harassment.
Power differential is key.”
