||The objective of this study was to analyse possible differences in the nature and extent of bullying as a function of the type of employment contract. It involved 103 public transport workers of the Urban Community of Madrid. Participants responded to a questionnaire on personal data, the type of employment contract, the extent of bullying, and organizational and leadership factors. Findings highlight significant differences between workers under temporary and permanent contracts concerning bullying and social isolation. Various hypotheses are put forward to explain the incidence of work contract flexibility on bullying at the place of work.
