Bullying in the Workplace: Hidden Costs and Legal Pitfalls


Unfortunately, bullying doesn't end in the schoolyard. Workplace bullying can be particularly destructive since the target may feel trapped and hopeless.

Workplace bullying can also be destructive to an organization, putting it at risk for lawsuits and destroying morale. Bullying must not be ignored; it will not go away on its own. This webinar focuses on preventing workplace bullying and dealing with it if it occurs.

Why should you attend: Bullying in the workplace has been an increasing problem for today's organizations, as incivility becomes more common among stressed out employees and managers. Bullying saps employee and work group morale, and can lead to charges of hostile workplace environments, lowered productivity, and the loss of key employees, not to mention costly lawsuits. It is imperative that organizations nip aggressive, inappropriate behavior in the bud, before it gets out of hand and has a destructive impact. This webinar will educate HR professionals about the impact of bullying, and suggest strategies, both preventive and remedial, to eliminate this unacceptable behavior and its corrosive influence.

Areas Covered in the Session:

  • Educate their teams on how to prevent and address bullying
  • Recognize bullying if it occurs and help the person targeted
  • Deal with the bully to stop the behavior
  • Assess their own behavior for any bullying tendencies.
Who Will Benefit:
  • HR Managers
  • HR Generalists
  • HR Assistants
  • Business Owners
  • Consultants
  • Managers
  • Supervisors
  • Employee Relations professionals
