||Specificity of the links between workplace harassment and PTSD: Primary results using court decisions, a pilot study in France
||Apr. 2009, Vol.82, No.5, p.663-668. Illus. 20 ref.
||France is one of the first countries to have passed specific legislation concerning "mental harassment" (bullying) in the workplace. The objective of this study was to clarify the criteria that French courts consider as characteristic of mental harassment, and to check whether the specific links between mental harassment at work and post-traumatic stress disorder reported in recent international studies have been taken into account. The study was based on a sample of 22 persons who were legally recognized as having been mentally harassed at work, selected from the French Ministry of Justice Website. Findings are discussed.
