As if ordinary stress wasn’t enough, some workplaces are additionally toxic to your health and happiness. While work is inherently stressful, there are some forms of workplace abuse and mistreatment you should avoid at all costs. If you encounter any or all of the following, you should not accept them as acceptable conditions. Contact a Human Resources officer, talk to other people about the problem, and if possible, find a better job.
1. Verbal abuse and office bullying
Verbal abuse is more than just occasional profanity. Verbal abuse doesn’t even need to be vulgar or profane. Instead, abuse is defined by its hostile or belittling intentions. Verbal abuse, classified as workplace harassment, is reaching the new status of bullying under the latest thinking.
2. Unethical or dubious behavior
It can be difficult to take the higher road, but the consequences of fraud can be immense and severe. Suspect behavior leads to fishy finances, and you don’t want to be caught in the middle of a fraudulent enterprise. If you suspect someone of illegally altering facts or figures, discuss what you think or saw with someone you respect, to stop the fraud before it gets out of control.
