Some of us have experienced workplace bullying and know it’s not pleasant. But a new book suggests its much more deeply ingrained in society than we may have initially thought, and our new workplace relations laws are set to make the situation even worse.

The authors also suggest that corporate culture and wider society must take responsibility rather than placing the blame on rouge managers. One of the authors of the book, Vaughan Bowie, a lecturer in the school of social sciences at the University of Western Sydney, spoke on the issue to The Wire.
