Workplace Violence Hurts.....It Almost Ended My World

Posted by @roxie43, Apr 13, 2012

Do you know of someone who has been made to feel worthless by a boss, company,or a culture; that promotes and rewards cruelty to human beings?

Do you think it’s o.k. to go to work, work hard and be intentionally hurt by workplace bullies who abuse their power?

Just like bullying in classrooms/schools is leading to bullycide’s and a host of psychological issues for our youth, adults in the workplace across the world are also suffering.

Workplace, discrimination and retaliation (if you report the sometimes unlawful behaviors):
Robs an individual of their self worth, causes enormous amounts of stress, exacerbates pre-existing health conditions, can limit one’s career growth, results in the hard work one does not being recognized and can also include defamation of character, slander, hostile and unhealthy work environments and even SUICIDE!

Sometimes the behavior can be subtle but the abuser knows exactly what he or she is doing. Often the abuser is manipulative and convinces individuals who they perceive as weak to do the dirty work for them so when the behavior is finally reported they are protected.

Hi My story is all to familiar with many. My Husband started out as a Printer at 15yearsold. He worked his way through and went back to study to further his qualifications when we were married. So proud of him for doing this, all to improve himself. As the years went on he became head of the printing field., and trained apprenticesHe then had the opportunity to work in the office quoting. He was now in the management sector. such an acheivement. However, let the nightmare begin. A new upstart of 40years old no expereince just a piece of paper from University entered and the mayhem began. In three years four people left after working for the comapny for 20 years. Nige was the last to leave, Everyday he would go in and be pressured, put down, made to work excedling long hours. I had never met more of a self centred SOB excuse me for this in all my life, An example was tickets to a race car event everyone received one , Nige was told to work. May sound minor but it;s not it showed a total lack of qppreciation. He was verbally abused everyday. How he kept going I will never know. I can still remember the phonecall. Nige rang and he had had a total breakdown. He was saying sorry to me for letting me down. The tears ran down my face and still do when I think about it. I immediately rang my Mum and My dr. I know had the fight to save Nige to keep him with me. He was heavily medicated, I kept him home, nutured and loved him back , held him while he cried, told him it would be okay. Three months it took, before everyhting turned around. Life is good for him know, he is An aged care worker like me and a wonderful one too. As for the creep that did this to everyone. He left the company and is no doubt causing destruction to other people.
Remember my dear friends, stand up for your rights don’t be abused, if you can take action.do If we don;t voice our opinions this disgusting behaviour and bullying will continue. Love to all Piglit

I don’t believe this is ok, but I’m not sure what would make it better. How to change it, what to do?

It’s not always easy to motivate oneself to remain active but the weather has truly been uplifting.

Hi
You’re right it’s very wrong but unfortunately our world has cruel people in it. Tell your husband to contact the local human rights commission and file a complaint. However, be aware that the emotional torture can become even more intense because workplace bullies hate it when the one being victimized reports unlawful practices.
I did not let them stop me regardless but the maltreatment eventually took it’s toll and made me very ill.
Tell your husband to be strong and document document document!
In the end, if it didn’t kill me it made me want accountability all the more. I also believe in karma and in the end people who intentionally hurt other human beings and cause someone so much pain that the person felt broken and demoralized it’s only a matter of time before the wrong person is targeted
Take care and thank you for sharing.

Some people want to be feared and don’t respect anything including laws. Despite how I’ve been hurt I feel pity because one must truly be filled with hatred instead of love.
I pray for such people
They really need it

You are not a bully Momentum. There’s a difference because you have shown your empathy and compassion to so many of us. The type of person I speak of is heartless, reckless, a control freak and will go to any lengths to crush another who dares to assert themselves.
Although I’m assertive I didn’t stand a chance when the bully manipulates others into justifying the behavior.
You are honest and passionate about your beliefs but you are not heartless
And, like Piglit, your ability to make us laugh is a gift.
