While federal government statistics indicate that approximately 28 percent of children ages 12 to 18 have been bullied at school, workplace bullying takes place at a similar rate, according to the Workplace Bullying Institute’s recently released 2014 U.S. Workplace Bullying Survey. Another 21 percent of workers have witnessed bullying on the job.
