Collective attacks aimed to eliminate an individual from the workplace have been explained in a number of ways and called a number of things. Clearly, this site describes the phenomenon in terms as workplace mobbing as first defined by Heinz Leymann. In the field of medicine, a similar elimination process has been called the “sham peer review” and is defined by Lawrence R. Huntoon as “an official corrective action done in bad faith, disguised to look like legitimate peer review” (Arizona Medicine article, 2004, PDF). The resources in this section address both sham peer review and mobbing as they appear in the medical field.
In this section of his website Workplace Mobbing in Academe, Kenneth Westhues takes a comparative look at sham peer review and workplace mobbing. Provides an extensive link to other articles on sham peer review.
Written by Dr. James Randolph Hillard, this article outlines the identification of workplace mobbing from a physician's standpoint. It provides an overview of the process and discusses the importance of investigating patient claims instead of dismissing the patient as paranoid.
