Sick of your boss?

Feeling horrible? Maybe your boss is to blame. A bad boss can be bad for your health, says new research from Florida State University. "Employees stuck in an abusive work relationship experience more exhaustion, job tension, nervousness, depressed mood and mistrust," says the researchers. They also were less likely to take on additional tasks, such as working longer or on weekends.
But bad boss behavior is surprisingly common: Almost a third of the 700 workers in a variety of occupations reported their supervisor gave them the silent treatment and failed to keep promises or made negative comments bout them to other employees.
If your boss is hard on you, researchers suggest staying visible, staying positive or filing a formal complaint if it reaches an abusive level. Click here to read more of the report.
