Bullying behaviour in the workplace causes stress and frustration for employees
||Last Updated: 09/15/2005

Bullying in the workplace is on the rise in Ireland, according to a new report released on August 17.

The Minister for Labour Affairs established an expert advisory group on workplace bullying a year ago and asked that the group table a report on the issue.

The group wasn’t able to distinguish if the actual incidence of bullying was increasing or if more people were reporting bullying behaviour because of the increasing awareness of the problem.
