Bullying and Favortism

Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about pals that bully.

My Director and a fellow co-worker are best friends on the outside. They sleep over at each others home, and they verbally bully certain co-workers they are not fond of, of which I am one because I speak up. Upper management is aware of this and has been for years. What can be done and how should H.R. handle this? Your help is greatly appreciated by many.

Signed, Bullied

Dear Bullied:

Since your company probably is large enough to have a branch or branches, it probably has established policy regarding how complaints should be handled. You should have access to a policy book or can contact Human Resources/Personnel to get information about that.
