    Abstract

    This empirical study explores perceptions of bullying among public sector workers with long-term health conditions (LTHC), using focus groups and interviews with knowledgeable trade union members and representatives. While incidents of overt discrimination occurred, there was more support for the social model of disability, with bullying largely attributed to intensive working practices typical of new public management.
