Integrating findings from research and practice in order to make practical, evidence-based recommendations for preventing and addressing systemic workplace mistreatment, this book:
• Focuses on the recursive effects of mistreatment in organizations and how individual and organizational well-being can be enhanced by carefully-designed policies and procedures.
• Creates a complete picture by bringing together relevant research from fragmented fields such as organizational psychology, labor relations and labor economics.
• Enables you to identify best practices for resolving mistreatment occurrences, for creating a civil workforce, and preventing recursive mistreatment.

--- from the publisher


"In this results-based world, where employers have higher demands and expectations of their workforce, books such as this are a good solid base from which to deliver a realistic approach to address managers' development needs. This book contains good practical examples of workplace mistreatment and is clearly written with case studies and research findings with analytical text, which are very useful for practitioners and in supporting academic work. The structure of the book makes it adaptable as a "quick dip" book for managers looking for best practice solutions, while also having a sound narrative resulting in academic rigor appropriate to research at all levels." (Human Resource Management Journal, January 2011)

At last, an excellent guidebook, rich in illustrative cases, that competently tells human relations practitioners and managers how to prevent, detect, diagnose, and redirect perceived unfairness in work situations." Evert Van de Vliert, Professor Emeritus, University of Groningen, and recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award from the International Association for Conflict Management

"Olson-Buchanan and Boswell have done an excellent job in merging state-of-the art science with clear and much needed recommendations for dealing with mistreatment at work. Mistreatment in the Workplace is a must read for academics and practitioners alike." Carsten K.W. De Dreu, Professor of Organizational Psychology, University of Amsterdam

"This book is a must-read for anyone interested in managing a critical issue in organizations: Mistreament. Olson-Buchanan and Boswell, leading scholars in the field, have provided the best practices—based on the best science—for how to prevent mistreatments and manage them once they occur. Vivid examples, systematic analyses, and thoughtful advice make this a truly outstanding book." Michele J. Gelfand, Professor of Psychology, University of Maryland
