Are You Being Bullied?
'Half the population are bullied ... most people only realize it
when they read this page' declares Bully OnLine,
site of British author Tim Field, an expert on workplace bullying
and stress caused by bullying. What exactly does Field mean by
bullying, you ask? 'Bullying differs from harassment and assault in
that the latter can result from a single incident or small number
of incidents -- which everybody recognizes as harassment or assault
-- whereas bullying tends to be an accumulation of many small
incidents over a long period of time. Each incident tends to be
trivial, and on its own and out of context does not constitute an
offense or grounds for disciplinary or grievance action.' Read
Field's helpful guide and find out how to tell if there's a bully
in your life.
