Workplace harassment has become a very significant matter for employers. Often it is fellow employees and not just persons in authority who are harassing or bullying other employees. The result is significant cost to employers for absenteeism, reduced productivity, disability claims and a high turnover of employees. It is important for all to know that every person is entitled to be treated with civility and respect. This includes workers in their attitude towards their employers as well as employers and managers toward the employees they are managing.
