A very specific form of bullying which is often misunderstood.

It is bullying that happens in a workplace, however the method of the bullying is much different to what you're usual idea of bullying would be.

It can involve multiple perpetrators attacking the victim in the one workplace, or it could be caused by one perpetrator at each place that the victim works at in their life.

Often workplace bullying doesn't end at one place of work, but continues by other perpetrators at the victim's subsequent workplaces.

One method is to make the victim feel as though people are spreading malicious gossip about the victim when they are not.

Another tactic is to undermine work performance by deliberately withholding information vital for effective work performance.

Sometimes the bullying may in the form of ostracism.
