The ‘mobbing’, and a crime, is one of the most serious categories of stress that a person may suffer to the extent that could endanger his life. Behavior is characterized by hostile and degrading to the worker by a person with a hierarchical position higher or a person or group of people to exclude a worker and encourage the abandonment of their work.
Some companies apply this practice to avoid redundancy payments, a phenomenon that has increased in recent years in the business. According to Lazarus, “in some companies apply these behaviors by encouraging the affected employee leaves the work on their own, thus avoiding compensation.”
In general terms, bullies are people narcissistic, insecure, egocentric, lacking empathy, psychopathic and paranoid symptom-free. Also, the lack of values between modern society and the workplace contributes to the increase in this type of harassment. “Today, raw competitiveness, selfishness, individualism and narcissism,” he said.
“The response to stress caused by the ‘mobbing’ varies depending on the personality and social environment. People with genetic and biological predisposition may react with psychosomatic disorders, panic attacks, anxiety attacks or depression, reaching some even to suicide “he explained.
