Violence at Work
Reports of bullying in the workplace are surprisingly high even in most developed countries. About 40% of employees have witnessed occasional bullying by coworkers while 3% has seen continuous violence. 2% has said they have experienced regular bullying by supervisors. Infrequent cases of violence by managers is up to 24%.
When you see any kind of violence, you have to report it. It doesn’t matter if you are the victim or you just have observed an unacceptable treatment to another employee. Staying silent against bullying -whether it’s systematically or a single case- could have serious consequences for you.
Any type of bullying at work is considered a crime. Employees must be aware of their rights and protest if they are neglected.
