GOMES, Luciene Ferreira Gomides  and  LIMA, Maria Elizabeth Antunes. Workplace bullying in the university context: study with an IFES in the interior of Minas Gerais. Cad. psicol. soc. trab. [online]. 2019, vol.22, n.1, pp. 1-14. ISSN 1516-3717.

The article is based on a study about the experience of moral harassment by technical-administrative employees of a Higher Education Federal Institution of Minas Gerais. The objective of the research was to identify the occurrence of this problem, its consequences and possible prevention actions. A qualitative study was conducted through semistructured and in-depth interviews. An analysis of the problem of moral harassment in the Institution was carried out taking into account the personal characteristics of the subjects in conflict, the particularities of their work and the organizational context. Twelve employees who were or were not victims of moral harassment participated in the survey, and were initially selected by the representatives union and then, by the Snowball method. The results suggest the presence of a dominant group in the Institution that dictates norms and rules of behavior, favoring abuse, a fact that indicates the need for measures to prevent and combat moral harassment in the context studied, besides its dissemination, giving publicity to such forms of conduct so that everyone can recognize, denounce, and, if possible, prevent them.
