Indeed, many workers will genuinely feel that they are being mobbed and will attribute lack of sympathy from others as proof that the others are part of the mob. It is therefore essential that any claimed or apparent case of mobbing be subjected to hard-nosed scrutiny in light of empirical indicators, measurable criteria by which to conclude that yes, this is a case of mobbing, or no, it is not."

    Is this the end of the Toxic Boss?

    "In the old days, if your boss made a habit of yelling at you in front of your co-workers, "all we could say was tough luck, you've got a crappy boss," says Toronto employment lawyer Janice Rubin. "So maybe look for another job." Then, a decade ago, the corporate bullies met their match: Canadian judges. They started to rule that if a boss was so mean to an employee that he got sick or quit, the boss, or his company, should have to compensate the target for the abuse."

Furthermore we now know that downsizing rarely returns the benefits expected of it: a downsized firm is often worse placed, not better, to compete."
