Not yet. But, I did read somewhere that work place bullying will be something that you will be able to sue for in the future. Or, something they are "looking" into because, it really isn't harassment but, it can surely lead into that direction. I certainly believe it is a pattern. That is someone does this and an employee complains that if nothing is done they will do it over and over again to the next person they seek until well it becomes serious. People have a hard time believing that adults are being bullied but, it does happen.
It has happened to me in several jobs. I am a Traveler. I can say often enough that I have been bullied for being the newbie or what I call "fresh meat". I mentioned in another thread that I have gotten use to it, as I really have no say in what goes on as I am in a guest in someone's house, so I put up with it. For one I really do ignore it. I mean sticking up for myself does not work as if I cough wrong I can lose a contract. Did that before too, lmao!
Usually, I tend to drop what happens at work the minute I leave the hospital. I am not going to say that it doesn't affect me mentally because, sometimes I am counting the days before my assignment ends. I try to think of what my job entails. I am not there to make friends and my job is to take care of patients. For the most part I will not extend a contract or, continue on a permanently with a hospital if they have employees that do this. The places that I do want to stay at usually aren't hiring, lol!
