Introduction. The workplace is an area where people spend many hours almost every day. Experiencing bullying in the workplace as a form of mainly psychological violence has a number of serious consequences. It should be stressed that the consequences of bullying are most severely felt by the victim of this workplace pathology. This is all the more dangerous, because it disrupts a certain order and order in the daily functioning of people in the mental, physical and social spheres.
Aim of the study. The aim of the work was to discuss prevention and anti-harassment activities.
Selection of materials. The search was carried out in the Scopus database for the period 2012-2020, using the concepts of preven-tion of harassment, anti-harassment activities. From the litera-ture found in the Google Scholar database, studies were selected which, in the opinion of the authors, would be most useful in the preparation of this study.
Conclusions. As a result of experiencing bullying in the work-place, there is an imbalance in the personal and family lives of the victims of this pathology. The employee in question transfers the problems experienced from the workplace to family life. This creates various conflicts and misunderstandings due to frequent complaining about problems at work. Due to the occurrence of bullying, the workplace may lose its positive image, its regular clients and bear the costs of legal proceedings brought by the victims of this pathology. The employer may also be adversely affected by the frequent health absence of employees, as well as the costs associated with the recruitment and training of new candidates for work. The effects of harassment apply not only to the employee but also to the employer.
