When most people think of bullying, images immediately come to mind of children in a schoolyard being taunted, pointed at, called names, ostracized, and physically threatened. Most people do not think about bullying occurring in a workplace. However, a recent study found that 38 per cent of Americans have been bullied or have witnessed bullying at work.
