    hat tip: Workplace Fairness

    Days of workplace bullies are numbered - Source: WorkBytes, Springfield News-Leader
    'In essence, I believe that employers should face liability for severe bullying that mirrors their liability for sexual harassment,' Yamada told Workbytes.

    Before you criticize him as just another professor with a sizable federal grant to spend, run 'workplace bullies' through your favorite search engine. You'll get about 200,000 entries (slightly less than the number for 'snot rags,' but still a fair amount).

    For instance, there's kickbully.com, which says the best way to interrupt a bully is to say 'excuse me,' followed by the bully's name. Example: 'Excuse me, Bob, but that wedgie you gave me after the sales meeting was completely uncalled for.'
