ABOUT mobbing.ca

The purpose of this site is to help employees and employers to overcome the needless suffering and tremendous costs associated with an insidious form of workplace abuse called 'mobbing'.

In recent years much has come to light about this disturbing phenomenon and its devastating consequences. Canada has lagged behind in addressing this issue but awareness is on the rise. To this end we will provide information and resources for all concerned: employees and employers, unions, EAP and health care professionals and most importantly to the targets of mobbing and their families.

Mobbing, also referred to as "adult bullying", "workplace bullying", "psychological harassment", "status-blind harassment" or just plain "bullying" is epidemic in Canadian workplaces.

and to have my senses
put in order.

Mobbing continues to cost employers countless hours of lost productivity, medical claims, absenteeism, high staff turnover, litigation costs and loss of reputation. Managers have a right to be concerned, very concerned, as this all gets added up in the final tally of the bottom line!

The targeted employee, usually among the employer's best and brightest, is subjected to systematic harassment, erosion of self-esteem and reputation, debilitating depression, physical health deterioration including such serious cardiovascular consequences as heart attack and stroke, human rights violations, post-traumatic stress disorder and once severely disabled - termination.

The damage is not contained to the workplace in which it occurs. Family and friends of the target are also mentally and emotionally impacted as they helplessly watch their loved one being ruthlessly tormented and broken down each day they go to work, eventually scarcely resembling the vital person they remember.

   

These combined stresses to a target's work and home life can conspire to leave their mental and physical health, their finances, and cruelest of all, their relationships - in ruins.

Some of the worst cases of mobbing have ended in tragedy. Pushed beyond the breaking point of any normal human being, some targets succumb to suicide or homicidal rage, often after years of pleading with supervisors, managers, human resources departments, EAP professionals and union representatives to intervene - all to no avail. In fact these pleas usually result in severe reprisals from the very authorities to which they are desperately appealling for help, as well as from the (original) bullies themselves. The situation escalates unchecked and with very predictable results.

Mobbing serves only the depraved interests of the bullies who perpetrate these outrages and perhaps those of some amoral and shortsighted managers who condone it in their workplace as a brutally effective method of staff reduction. We, as individuals and as a (civilized) society, cannot continue to allow these interests to be served - the cost is far, far too great to bear.

It is time to say - "Enough is enough!"

"Every employer, said Justice Dambrot, owes a contractual duty to its employees to “treat them fairly, with civility, decency, respect, and dignity.” By failing to protect Ms. Stamos from Mr. Hammami’s harassment, the court concluded that the employer had breached this contractual duty."
