Nobody likes a bully. Unfortunately bullies don't go away when you grow up. Instead, they can resurface in the workplace, often rising to positions of power. If you find yourself the victim of workplace harassment, you may be tempted to quit and find a new job. However, it's important to remember that some types of workplace harassment may be illegal, and you have rights.
Harassment in the workplace does not just happen in certain job fields or in particular areas of the country -- sadly, it is far more widespread than that. A new book from a muckraking journalist even alleges that under the Obama administration, the White House is a 'genuinely hostile workplace for women." The allegation of a hostile work environment is one of the book's more eye-popping claims.
