With an intimidating boss
Your tormentors may even accuse you of bullying them if you stand up to them.
Workplace intimidation always decreases productivity by lowering morale and increasing internal frictions within the company.
Workplace intimidation includes illegal sexual harassment and discrimination, but is not limited to illegal behavior.
Such behavior is destructive to the victim and the company.
Your co-workers may be bullying you if they give you the "silent treatment" or otherwise consistently ostracize you. Superiors, peers or even subordinates may sabotage your work to provide a pretext for disciplining you or even firing you.Most workers in the survey said they wish their organizations were less tolerant of toxic employees.Engle recommends that you communicate your ideal outcome with your boss and plan next steps.One day your boss gives X instruction for doing Y, but when you do X, and the result (through no fault of yours) is unsatisfactory, the boss denies giving that instruction.She may even feign outrage that you would “accuse” her of such a thing. In extreme cases, this trait can lead to ethical and legal breaches.
