This article presents information from a research report by Stuart D. Sidle, associate professor, Department of Psychology, the University of New Haven about the psychological despair suffered by employees who are bullied in the workplace by their supervisors. The report concludes that programs to prevent such bullying would be more effective if there is an understanding of what organizational factors contribute to the bullying. Research has found that those employed in personal service jobs, especially women and minorities, are more frequently bullied. The report also discovered that bullying is often found in disorganized, chaotic, and poorly managed workplaces.
