Through qualitative telephone interviews, individuals' experiences of workplace-related bullying in human-care professions have been investigated in this study. Theories of recognition and stigma have been used as interpretative tools in the analyzes. The experiences of bullying have been spread, but some experiences are shared by informants. Some of the informants stated that the bullying was hidden and the perpetrators wanted to make them look stupid by hiding information. Many of the informants stated that the boss was included in the bullying. The results of the study indicate that bullying has given the participants serious consequences. Mobbing could lead to mental and physical consequences such as anxiety, stomach pain, stress, numbness and sleep discomfort, in addition, the majority of informants were called in sick because of the bullying they were subjected to. The interviews ended in a positive spirit, as most stated that they are doing well today, although some of them are still affected by what has happened to them. The conclusions that can be drawn are that bullying occurred both subtle and direct. The bullying affected individuals physically and mentally. Seven of eight informants were called in sick as a consequence, however, the majority of informants now feel fine.
