Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Power harassment is harassment or unwelcome attention of a political nature, often occurring in the environment of a workplace including hospitals, schools and universities. It includes a range of behavior from mild irritation and annoyances to serious abuses which can even involve forced activity beyond the boundaries of the job description. Power harassment is considered a form of illegal discrimination and is a form of political and psychological abuse, and bullying.Although power harassment has occurred in many environments, it received wide publicity in the Japanese work environment, especially during the "economic animal" era.The term itself was coined by Okada Yasuko in 2002 and is used mainly in Japan. It is analogous to "abuse of authority" or rankism in the workplace. Yuichiro Makiguchi is one of the researchers of power harassment at Tokoha Gakuen Junior College in Japan.show more
