According to HeadsUp.org, a website that provides workplace resources for employees, employers, managers and small business owners, the definition of workplace bullying is “repeated and unreasonable behavior directed toward an employee or group of employees that creates a risk to health and safety.” This type of harmful behavior in the workplace many times goes unreported, mainly because of it’s shameful, intimidating effect on the victimized employee.
