Abstract

Bullying behaviors are complex acts, and are believed to be more prevalent than sexual harassment. When organizations do not systematically address these behaviors, it results in a dysfunctional atmosphere where employees quit the organization(s), either voluntarily or by force. The twofold objectives of this paper were to measure the overall level of bullying prevalent within the sample and the relation between exposure to bullying behaviors and intention to quit that workplace. A total of 207 questionnaires were distributed among the faculty members of private sector universities of Peshawar. Both exposure to Workplace Bullying and Intention to Quit were separately measured. The level of workplace bullying was found to be low but a significant positive relationship was found between workplace bullying and intention to quit
