A leading trade union is threatening to name and shame employers who fail to tackle bullying at work.
Most firms are not tackling the bullying problem, a survey found
Amicus said it received hundreds of complaints every year from members who claimed they had suffered bullying in the workplace.
It said it would start naming firms it felt were not adequately dealing with the problem from 2005.
It is estimated that almost 19 million working days are lost every year in the UK as a result of workplace bullying.
Mandy Telford, anti-bullying campaign co-ordinator at Amicus, said: "We know that in the worst cases victims suffer from similar trauma to soldiers after combat.
"The resulting economic damage to the UK in terms of sick days and lack of productivity is increasingly serious.
"We held back from naming firms overlooking their duty of care to their employees in 2004, but next year we will take no prisoners."
Amicus set up a special hotline over summer for staff at Gatwick and Heathrow airports to contact with complaints.
It revealed a "horrendous culture" of bullying, including at at least five airlines, it said.
Amicus is already involved in a government-sponsored campaign to investigate
the causes of bullying in the workplace.
The union also hopes to have bullying made illegal and wants companies to sign an anti-bullying charter.
