Workplace bullying is any action that someone could reasonably see as making another person feel humiliated or intimidated. (If it’s around areas protected by human rights we call the same behaviour harassment). This doesn’t include reasonable actions from an employer or supervisor in managing the workplace. Workplace bullying and harassment affect a significant number of working Canadians, but incidents are often unreported. Bullying and harassment take an enormous toll on mental health, often leading to poor mental health and well-being, mental illnesses like depression or post-traumatic stress disorder, and substance use problems. Bullying and harassment should never just be part of the job, and it’s up to everyone—policy leaders, employers, employees, and labour organizations—to take action and develop workplace cultures based on compassion, respect and inclusion.
