Expert offers tips on tackling workplace bullying
One industry expert who is looking to tackle workplace bullying has warned that context is something which needs to be considered when dealing with the issue.

Robert Mueller, a lawyer and author of A Survivor's Guide: How to Transcend the Illusion of the Interpersonal, says that what is considered to be normal behaviour on a building site may be unacceptable in an office.

According to Management Issues, Mr Mueller encourages employees to document and collect data regarding any instances of bullying so that it can then be put on an incident report form.

The expert also has advice on how to avoid fuelling the bully's fire.

Management Issues notes him as suggesting: "Tell bullies as little as possible about your life, family, friends, hobbies, interests, religion and so on. Information about you gives them power."

The Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service claims that exclusion, unfair treatment and preventing individuals from progressing all constitute workplace bullying.
