Workplace bullying: myth or reality: can we afford to ignore it?

Charlotte Rayner, C. Cooper

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Introduces workplace bullying and examines the nature of actions associated with it as well as recent UK data on incidence. Develops a cost-benefit argument for organizations to deal with the issue and comments that despite the overwhelming benefits, few organizations appear to have workplace bullying on their agenda. Highlights evidence that bullying is the single largest category identified in employment litigation connected to stress at work - even though it may not be specifically named. Concludes that more knowledge is needed in this area and that it is an ideal focus for academics and practitioners to investigate jointly.
