Every day in American workplaces, a subtle epidemic of employee bullying takes place. Employees victimized by unconscionable bullying attacks experience lower self-esteem and lose the ability to complete their work effectively.
Victims of the workplace bully can develop lifelong emotional and physical trauma in the form of Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Some bullying is so severe that the targets cannot continue working in the public sector. Ousted employees descend into poverty; others can only work from home in a freelance capacity, thus losing important company health benefits and acquiring a steep tax burden.
