Dutch Complain More about Pestering

Dutch employees complain more about pestering, violence and intimidation at their workplace than in other parts of Europe. For example, two-thirds of doctors and nurses regularly experience harassment of some kind. Caregivers and teachers complain about improper behavior toward them. These are the findings in a report sent by the Minister of Social Affairs (Sociale Zaken) to Parliament (Tweede Kamer) a few days ago. Whereas on the whole, the Netherlands scores favorably compared to other European countries regarding work conditions, Dutch employees experience more bad manners.
