Let me start by saying I wish I had the money that is spent on these studies...I think this one is a no brainer.

"The study, published online and in the winter issue of the journal Personnel Psychology, included 280 full-time employees and their partners who completed online surveys.

The Baylor University researchers found that the stress and tension an abusive boss causes an employee also affects the worker's partner, their relationship and the rest of the family."


"Abuse by a boss may include tantrums, rudeness, public criticism and inconsiderate action, the study authors pointed out."
