One out of five working Bulgarians is subjected to psychological harassment by his manager or colleague. These cases have become more frequent, according to data from reports on violations received in CITUB over the year.

The most common complaints are related to insults, threats and others. They are part of the daily life of 20% of workers in Bulgaria, as 70% of the affected are women and 30% are men. Most cases of bullying occur in the age group 26-45 years. The Penal Code provides for sanctions for public insults. The workers must submit a signal to the employer and they must carry out an inspection immediately.
