ABSTRACT
Workplace bullying is a noted phenomenon that is sweeping across countries within various organizations. The workplace bullying concept is related to the field of ethics in that it involves identification, assessment, monitoring and control, and outcome evaluations. The authors present a workplace bullying framework within the context of ethics by presenting two approaches to workplace bullying including duty and outcome based reasonings. The underlying foundations of the approaches are further used to support a framework for preventing and mitigating workplace bullying issues. The authors discuss human resource functions and a workplace bullying policy that are enacted in order to assist organizations in avoiding litigation related to workplace bullying infractions.
