The tendency of women in a professional setting, when in trouble, to blame or include other coworkers rather than accept responsibility, or even cover for them. It's derived from the idea that crabs in a boiling pot of water will claw at and drag each other down rather than sacrifice oneself to see any other succeed.
Mike said I need to stop crab potting him, but it's not fair I got yelled at for being late when he was too.
