Employing phenomenological approach with 20 teachers, in-depth interviews and focus group discussion were conducted which revealed that bullying of teachers in the workplace is prevalent. Four major types of bullying as experienced by teachers emerged, such as emotional bullying, verbal bullying, physical bullying and cyberbullying. Workplace bullying negatively affected all facets of the teachers’ lives, their physical health, psychological health and social health, being the emergent themes as consequences of workplace bullying. The participants had different approaches in coping with the experience, either personal struggle or group support.
