ZAMARCHI, Morgana; RISSI, Vanessa  e  TOMASI, Lívia Bedin. Moral harassment: an analysis based on the perception of lawyers who defended harassed workers. Cad. psicol. soc. trab. [online]. 2021, vol.24, n.1, pp. 89-101. ISSN 1516-3717.

Moral harassment has reverberated in claims for damages to the labor justice system, and many of them have been denied. Among the reasons are the inconsistencies presented by lawyers in lawsuits. Thus, the objective of this research is to analyze the understanding of lawyers in relation to bullying at work, through a qualitative study with 16 lawyers, who defended at least one case of moral harassment. Data from interviews were treated using content analysis, generating thematic categories a posteriori. The main findings indicated understandings of moral harassment that differed from the legal and psychological basis, in terms of definition and characterization, as well as the distinction between moral harassment and moral damage. Furthermore, the lawyers informed the main means of evidence used, the difficulties in establishing the causal link between harassment and illness, and reported misleading conduct that contributes to weakening the concept of moral harassment. The results raise concerns about coping with bullying at work, indicating the need to improve lawyers' understanding on the subject.
