Workplace intimidation, also known as workplace bullying, occurs when a superior, peer or subordinate uses violence or blackmail to manipulate you or intentionally creates feelings of fear, inadequacy or awe.
Workplace intimidation includes illegal sexual harassment and discrimination, but is not limited to illegal behavior.

Your tormentors may even accuse you of bullying them if you stand up to them.
Workplace intimidation always decreases productivity by lowering morale and increasing internal frictions within the company.
