Abstract: As a global phenomenon, workplace bullying is highly influenced by those who are involved and, thus, it extends to their organizations. Data were collected using in-depth interviews including females and disabled individuals from diverse sectors in Jordan. Major themes were identified from the informants sample included discrimination based on gender, being a handicapped, feeling of superiority, and unfair work environment. This paper focuses on establishing effective regulations and programs which aim to intervene and mitigate the negative bullying practices among organizations. It also provides a safe workplace atmosphere to allow employees carry out their tasks and duties in a comfortable and secure method that mainly enhance the overall organizational performance.
Keywords: Workplace Bullying, Target, Semi-Structure Interview, Jordan.
