The article reviews research on bullying in the workplace. First, we present the most important conclusions of the 30-years long discussion concerning the definitional criteria of bullying. We describe the empirically documented negative behaviors that are classified as bullying. We review research findings concerning prevalence of bullying, its organizational, social and individual antecedents, and its outcomes (both for the target and for the organization). The article contains references to the authors’ surveys results which agree with other findings in this domain.
