How were you dealt with by your solicitor or barrister?
Are you living or working with a control freak? I'm Hollie Smith and I'm writing another feature for Woman magazine, this time about the difficulties of living or working with a control freak. I'd like to find someone (female in the UK, any age) who has in the past or is currently going through this experience in the workplace. Email Hollie Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org
New York Daily News: I'm Jordan Lite and I'm a freelance journalist with an assignment from the New York Daily News to write about bullying in the workplace. I'm looking for people in the New York metro area to interview who have experienced any of the following while on the job: repeated, malicious verbal harassment of a general nature (NOT sexual harassment or discrimination based on race, gender, age, sexual orientation or religion); deliberate humiliation; or the withholding of resources or support that prevented them from performing their jobs. The abuse could have come at the hand of a supervisor or a colleague. In the case of teachers or people working in the retail or services industries, it could also have come from students or customers. I am especially interested in talking with people who experienced short or long-term health effects from the abuse -- stress, depression, insomnia, nightmares, phobias, gastrointestinal troubles, etc. -- or whose careers or lives outside the office were significantly impacted by it. No workers comp cases, please. Willing interviewees should e-mail me at email@example.com ONLY if they live in the New York metro area. The paper strongly prefers that sources be identified by name, though exceptions may be made if absolutely necessary. The piece will be written such that the business where the abuse occurred and the bully will not be recognizable.
Set the record straight: I'm Susan Wallace, a well-established freelance feature writer for UK women's magazines. I'm looking for a person in the UK who has recently won a tribunal or court case against a company for being bullied out of a job. Real names and photos will be used, so there must be no gagging order (which I know is often the case when compensation is involved.) It must not have been in any women's magazine already either. You will be handled sensitively and it's a chance to set the record straight. Tel 0151-233 3689 / 07801 055556 (I'll ring you straight back.(UK.)) Or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Don't delay - please ring today! Thanks.
Bullying in boarding schools: I'm Juliet Riddell, I am researcher for UK Granada Television. I am working on a programme about British boarding schools and trying to contact people that have attended them and experienced bullying. The best way to contact me is via email at Juliet.Riddell@granadamedia.com or to call me on 0207 633 2544.
