Bullying isn’t something that just happens in school.
You shouldn’t have to deal with aggression or intimidation.
When you’re being intimidated or bullied by someone at work, it can feel as if your options are pretty limited.
Bullying in the workplace is actually incredibly common, but can be hard to identify and even harder to know how to deal with it.
In certain work environments, it can feel like just part of the game, like everyone slags each other off and you have to be tough and keep up.

, prosecutor Hilary Dozer had the jury removed to inform the court that someone in the audience allegedly made an intimidating gesture toward his witness.That witness - a 15-year-old former Eastside gang member - later admitted that he was aware of threats made for testifying on the stand.It appeared that the mother of the 15-year-old pointed out the gesture to an investigator for the District Attorney’s office, who in turn told Dozer.Later, with additional security and the jury of 11 women and five men - four of which are alternates - back in the courtroom, Dozer asked the boy, whose name is withholding at the request of the prosecutor, if he was aware of threats being made for being in the courtroom and testifying.He said he was aware, but not able or willing to tell who made those threats.If you’re dealing with bullying, remember whoever’s doing it is probably using it as a way of dealing with their own problems. They could be motivated by jealousy, lack of knowledge, fear or misunderstanding. No one deserves or asks to be bullied, no matter what.
