Individual Differences and Experiences of Workplace Bullying
Purpose of the Study: Workplace bullying/harassment is an issue gaining more and more concern and attention in Canada as can be seen by the increase in the number of anti-harassment/bullying policies in organizations as well as by the development and enactment of anti-harassment laws. In addition to increasing efforts to reduce and prevent workplace bullying there is also a need to understand the experiences of individuals involved in harassment situations. In building the understanding and awareness of harassment, most research studies and policies have focused only on identifying victims and understanding their experiences. A smaller amount of harassment research has investigated the experiences of observers of workplace harassment or those accused of harassment. The study in which you are invited to participate today is one step in a research program to investigate the experiences of individuals who have experienced workplace harassment from one or more of these perspectives (i.e., victim, accused and/or observer). It is hoped that such research will eventually lead to a better understanding of the individual factors that relate to the occurrence of harassment for individuals and organizations. A better understanding of the factors that influence harassment may help to prevent it from occurring.
Description of the Study: This study is being done online. As a participant in this study you will be asked to respond to several questionnaires asking about you and your experiences. You will not be required to provide identifying information (that is, any information which would allow others to figure out who you are) but will be asked to provide general demographic information (such as age, gender and number of years at your job). Participation will take approximately 20 minutes to a half hour. Please remember that your participation is voluntary, you are free to stop at any time without penalty, you may skip any question(s) you do not wish to answer, your name will not be included on or presented with any of the research findings.
