3 Types of Bullying:

Bullying in the Workplace
Bullying in the workplace can prove to be toxic to your work environment and can target anyone from management, employees, teachers and contractors here at Centennial.
Bullying in the workplace can be in the form of:
- Offensive jokes
- Unwarranted punishment
- Verbal/physical/emotional attacks
- Embarrassing or demeaning people with words or gestures
Cyber bullying involves hostile behaviour via chartrooms, social media sites, e-mail and/or text messaging.

Cyber bullying involves violent language that can be extremely crude.
