It seems that news outlets are reporting on cases of bullying more and more often. Of course, when these stories break, they typically involve a school-aged child suffering due to the malicious actions of his or her peers. However, bullying does not just affect kids and does not only happen in schools.
As an adult who performs well at your job, you may have experienced bullying in the workplace. Though the actions may make you uncomfortable -- and possibly even frightened --, you may think that you simply have to put up with the mistreatment from your co-workers. However, their actions may constitute harassment, and if your employer does not make efforts to put a stop to those actions, you may have reason to file a lawsuit.
