At our workplace we are friends for the most part… : A quantitative study about bullying and harassment at workplaces (English)
Abstract [en]

Bullying and harassment is a common phenomenon that usually is associated with schools, but bullying among adults at workplaces is not as much discussed. Previous research shows that discrimination occurs in various social areas because of the individual's gender and ethnicity. Based on this there was a reason to suppose that bullying, which is a form of vulnerability, could also depend of belonging to a particular social category. The aim of this study was to get knowledge about the correlation between bullying at the workplace and concurrent collaboration of class, gender and ethnicity. The results of this quantitative study show that there is no correlation between the simultaneous interaction of gender, class and ethnicity towards bullying and harassment. (The concept immigration status is used instead of ethnicity). The results show, however, that there is correlation between individual social categories (gender, immigration status and class) and some specific types of vulnerability mentioned in the survey.
