The present study aimed to find validity evidence for the Workplace Bullying Scale (ELAM), through its correlation with the Quality of Work Life Scale (QVT). The participants were 338 employees of several organizations from the state of Sergipe in Brazil, aged between 18 and 61 years. Of the total, 56.5% (191) were women. Negative correlations of low magnitude were found among the scales’ factors, indicating validity evidence for ELAM. The analysis of differences between groups indicated that workplace bullying undermines the perception of the quality of work life
