Bullying behaviors in the workplace are marked by repeated events of intimidation that creates a pattern of humiliation and fear in the victim. School staff are not immune to this behavior. Although studies have been conducted on student to student bullying behavior, little research has been done concerning adult to adult bullying in the educational workplace.

Organizational cultural theory, emotional intelligence and humiliation theory are used to understand the phenomenon of adult bullying in the workplace setting.
