Bullying employees seems to be an increasing occurrence at workplaces in Florida and other states. Although employee rights are there to protect workers against all types of employment law violations, statistics suggest that more than a third of American workers are victims of workplace bullying. Sadly, not all understand the devious ways of bullies, and victims are often seen as unable to cope with common workplace pressure.
What is alarming is the fact that it is often supervisors and managers who subject employees to belittling or offensive comments and humiliation in front of coworkers. Physical abuse even takes place in some extreme cases, but perpetrators are usually devious enough to make sure that their actions are within the standard practices of their companies. Victims are often given the impression that they deserve the actions against them.
