Staff on Staff Bullying in the Workplace?

November 28th, 2011

Several readers lately asked that I address the topic of staff bullying other staff—intimidating, harassing, threatening, coercing colleagues to do something they do not want to do.

Before I tackle such an article I would like to invite you to email me your personal experiences and observations regarding this issue in the corrections workplace.

Here are some questions to get you started.

  • Have you been bullied at work, and if so, how? What did you do about that? What did you not do? What was the outcome?
  • Have you witnessed coworkers being bullied? What happened?
  • To what degree do you think staff bullying is a problem in your facility? What do you think are reasons for that?
  • What do you think would be effective ways to stop bullying in the workplace or even better, to prevent it?

With your permission, we may use your material in a future article anonymously, unless you indicate otherwise.
