Nowadays there has been an increasing tendency in examining environmental forces that are accountable for a wide range of organizational inappropriate behaviors in contemporary workplaces. Throughout many decades, workplace bullying had figured prominently in the difficulties that workers experience. Workplace bullying has been proven to be a significant stressor that can impact the victim’s emotional and physical health, and also their overall well-being. There are many factors that cause job stress, disengagement at the workplace, and intention to leave but one of the major and less discussed issues is workplace bullying. This study was intended to find out the effects of workplace bullying on employees of organizations. We track efforts to evaluate and expand theories, along with explaining the relationship between workplace bullying and employment outcomes and its intensity. In doing so, we look at the determinants, effects, and correlations of bullying with workplace stress, turnover intention, work engagement, along with the roles of multidimensional job crafting intervention.
