See the February 2007 panel discussion of bullying in the below.
An excerpt from the show:
Panelist: “We’re talking about a full-bore systematic interpersonal campaign of destruction.  It takes the form of either verbal abuse or conduct that’s threatening, humiliating or intimidating.  It actually prevents work from getting done. … And it’s also not conflict.  It’s very important that people understand: it’s not traditional conflict, so it will not be solved by the traditional tools … It’s very important that we make it about serious abusive health-harming mistreatment.”
Moderator: “So what you’re saying is, this is a health and safety issue in the workplace.  And that’s not conducive to a healthy workplace environment, if you have this kind of atmosphere of bullying.”
Note that Labor on the Job is the longest running labor cable show in the United States (programmed since 1983).  The panelists in "Bullying On The Job" are:
Drs. Gary and Ruth Namie, co-directors of the Workplace Bullying Institute and co-authors of "The Bully at Work."  Dr. Ruth Namie lost the job she loved as a clinical psychologist and suffered PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) at the hands of a brutal female boss at a large Bay Area HMO.
Carrie Clark, a former teacher and co-founder of California Healthy Workplace Advocates, also traumatized with PTSD, who refused to be silenced when permanently physically disabled by the brutal psychological violence of a school superintendent – a “serial bully” – whom she caught "cooking the books."
Rhea Settles, a public schools administrator and Laney College instructor, also a member of California Healthy Workplace advocates, who was targeted by workplace abusers and who subsequently founded Behave! – Gateway to Civility and Dignity in Education  (Go to for a list of 18 “uncivil behaviors,” including slander, libel, lying, sabotage, retaliation, and threats.)
Bill Lepowsky, a Laney College math instructor who successfully fought back against a termination threat, an eviction order, false accusations, denial of due process and other managerial abuses spanning years, commencing during his 33rd year at Laney, but was unable to prevent College and District managers from sabotaging progress in an academic program, thus denying students improved educational opportunities.
