  1. “Workplace violence is any act against an employee that creates a hostile work environment and negatively affects the employee either physically or psychologically. Bullying is a non-homicidal form of violence and a systematic campaign that jeopardizes your health, your career, your family and the job you once loved. And because it is violent , emotional and physical harm results.

    Bullies are not psychopaths. They are normal people who get very aggressive at work. And it is not about you”.(www.workplacebullying.org) –See Comment from ABC, in reply to this comment.

    To date there are ten employees including myself who have been subjected to various forms of repeated harassing, malicious, cruel and humiliating attempts to undermine us by the same manager, in the same department, in the same facility in southern New Hampshire. Four employees have been terminated while the others have left because of the emotional toll it was taking on their health. Having worked with eight of these wonderful people I can attest to their character, professionalism, skill, loyalty and genuine care for the people in the community. One employee was tormented and terminated after 38 years of service excellence. She was constantly ordered into meetings without any warning or support and subjected to being yell at, intimidated, belittled and routinely threatened with termination. She was humiliated and tormented by words, intonations and attacks on her character even though her work performance and yearly reviews were very good. Another employee from the same department was terminated last week. I was terminated from this department after 28 years of continuous, loyal service to this facility. Like the other employees my evaluations were great, coworkers enjoyed working with me and my patients appreciated all that I did for them. I had received a substantial pay raise 5 months before the torment and bullying began because the management said they ” appreciated the years of dedication, professionalism and ability to be a team player.
    What we all have in common is the fact we were subjected to emotional distress and psychological harassment over a period of time resulting in mental and physical distress. By this managers words, intonations and actions he created an environment that was hostile and offensive. And the documentation about each encounter we had with this bully was twisted, inaccurate and crafted to be so hurtful we were doubting our sanity. .
    Sadly the administration including Human Resources were aware of the hostile work environment within this department and did nothing to prevent or abate the problem. We begged them for help but were just sent back to the bully for ‘conflict resolution” . Stopping workplace violence requires more than mere “conflict resolution”. We were offered counseling but only at the hands of this abuser.
    Workplace violence is an occupational and safety health hazard and addressed by OSHA in their guidelines for preventing workplace violence for healthcare and social service workers. (OSHA 3148-01R2004). I would be interested in knowing the cost of mental and physical ill health that this stress has caused on not only the abused employee but to all the others that witnessed the abuse and were too afraid for their jobs to say anything. I know I ended up in the emergency room with chest pains after a particularly cruel meeting, sought out psychological counseling and took two weeks of short term disability to try and process what was happening to me.
    Eleven years ago I battled breast cancer with a poor prognosis. I would rather fight that battle again then endure what I did at the hands of this evil man and an administration that turned a deaf ear to our pleas for help.
    On January 7, 2010 a legislature from Hinsdale, New Hampshire proposed legislation (House Bill 1403) designed to provide legal protection for workers subjected to an abusive and hostile work environment. Several of us who were negatively impacted by this cruel and evil manager shared our experiences before the House Labor, Industrial and Rehabilitative Services Committee in Concord, NH. Sadly the proposed bill went no farther. Hopefully with public awareness, a new administration and claims of abuse causing medical malpractice to soar due to bullying employees and patient injury we can say that bullying in the workplace is wrong financially and morally. It shouldn’t hurt to go to work.
    I found a wonderful website that is designed for employees that have been bullied. http://www.workplacebullylaw.org. This site is designed for bullied individuals to help educate in hopes of making a difference in your health ,and, in return, your life.
    Thank you for listening.

  2. Dear Maggie,
    Thank you for sharing. From your description, you and your past coworkers were dealing with a very dangerous serial workplace bully boss! I disagree however that bullies, like the one you are describing, are NOT psychopaths. Through my research, it is my belief, that the majority of “REAL workplace bullies” are either “socialized psychopaths” or have “narcissistic personality disorder”. By “REAL bullies”, I don’t mean bosses who are merely arrogant and rude. I mean those who are literally out to destroy a person for no valid reason at all. A normal person’s conscience, empathy and compassion kicks in at the mere thought of such deviant, antisocial behaviors and does not permit them to behave in such a way. Surely, even “normal” people lose their temper and blow up periodically, but “normal” people always see the error of their ways and apologize. REAL bullies never apologize and never see the error of their ways, continuing to destroy one person after another. This is far from “normal”. Look into “psychopathy” and “narcissism” yourself and see how the descriptions fit that of your serial bully boss. Here is a good link: http://friedgreentomatoes.org/. Oh, by the way, the link in your comment doesn’t work. Can you write back and correct that.
    Thanks again for your comments. ABC-AntiBullyingCrusador
