Recognizing bullying in the workplace

August is Don't Be a Bully Month, and we thought it was a great time to discuss bullying in the workplace. Often, people talk about bullying in the context of children and teens, but this type of behavior can happen as we get older. In some cases, workplace bullying even steps into the bounds of sexual harassment or discrimination, and those are very serious legal matters.

Is your termination a breach of contract?

If you have an employment contract and your employer lets you go, it's important to understand if that termination breached the contract. If it did, you have a potential case for wrongful termination because of a breach of contract. It can be difficult to understand if a provision of the contract was breached in some cases, which makes it a good idea to seek professional assistance in reviewing your case.

Is online sexual harassment possible?

Online sexual harassment is possible, and it can occur in the workplace. In fact, with the growing reliance on digital means of communication and doing business, it's likely that more people will see harassment in these environments. This is especially true because many people no longer work in the same buildings with others or engage in face-to-face teamwork on a regular basis. Often, teams are working from home or disparate locations and use email, chat and conferencing for communications.

Do you know how to calculate your wage or salary?

One of the first steps in understanding whether you are being paid correctly is being able to calculate your hourly wage or annual salary. If you are paid hourly, there are times you might need to know how much you earn per week, per month or per year. If you are paid an annual salary, you might want to convert that to find out how much you are paid hourly.

Is workplace discrimination growing?

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission publishes numbers for discrimination charges filed by individuals each year. While these numbers don't reflect all of the workplace discrimination occurrences -- many go unreported -- they do provide some insight on the trends of discrimination in the country.
