Punk Rock HR Advice: How To Stop Bullies At Work


Charlene read my post about bullying but needs your HR expertise.

I’m going through a rough patch like that right now. I’m a little lost as to what I should do. I have been ignoring the sarcastic emails and innuendo comments in hopes that it will stop. Sorry to report but some people just don’t give up. Any ideas????

Charlene, you’re right. Some people don’t give up. You don’t deserve sarcastic emails and comments, but ignoring the jerk won’t help. Luckily, there is strength in numbers. I’m going to ask my readers to give you their best HR advice. We’ll see if that helps.

My advice? Say something to the chump. Say it once. Be clear and concise. If the harassment continues, take it to someone with a tremendous amount of power and authority at your company — and make sure the person knows you won’t leave their office until he/she helps you.

Anyone else?
