Try talking to the people who you feel are bullying you, communicate how you feel and make sure that it's reasonable too. If not, you might want to talk to your manager or a boss.

If you're being bullied at work it's best to report it too your boss or supervisor or if the situation requires legal action then you can always report the situation to the police as well.

Talk to your boss about it and dont be afraid to speak out because its not allowed for someone treat anyone like that

You should let them no that whatever they're doing to you is not okay and report it to your boss. If that doesn't work, then you should look into getting a lawyer and prepare for a lawsuit.

Contact your boss tell them exactly what is happening. They wouldn't be happy to find out that their workers are being rude.

You have every right to be treated fairly at work - remember, you don't deserve to be bullied; nobody does. If you can, speak to your supervisor or manager - someone at work whom you can trust. They should be able to stop the bullying and ensure your safety and happiness at work. If not, you can talk to a work union or even the police if the bullying has become very detrimental to you.

I think you should totally put a stop to it before it gets to you. You should stand up for yourself before it gets worse.

Realizing that you have the ultimate control of how you view yourself and there attempts at bullying you are not to be tolerated and that you should resolve it with them or talk with your boss don't let people push you down.

Let your boss know as soon as possible because im pretty sure he / she will not tolerate that kind of behaviour don't be afraid to reach out about it. In the mean Time you can connect with people on 7cups who will be there for you.

You should really confront it, move schools and tell someone with power. Even confront them and just talk it out with them 1v1.

If you are getting bullied at work, I would personally tell you're boss about it and he will more than likely settle it

Tell someone you trust about it that way you both can choose the appropriate way to deal with this. Don't let others words hurt you. Just have to feel bad for those doing this because it shows how miserable bitter and sad their life is. Don't let them pull you down in their bitterness.

You should let somebody who's in charge know that you're being bullied. They're at their job to do work, not to bully other employees.

Be assertive and tell the person to stop or you'll be Reporting the bullying. If it's your boss report it to someone higher.
