Although there is no specific law that protects people in the workplace for being bullied, there are laws that can protect you regarding the reasons why you are being bullied.
If you are being bullied simply because of your age, sex, religious beliefs, national origin, sexual orientation or race, you may have grounds for legal action.
Bullying is tied very close with other laws against workplace harassment or discrimination that often lead to a hostile working environment.
If you find yourself being bullied at work keep in mind that the law clearly can protect you if any of your civil rights are being violated.
