The process of globalization and the increasingly interconnected network of business relationships and financial flows and direct investment influence the dynamics of development and the room for maneuver of companies in the global market. In the world of work, change happens at incredible speed, employee action, how employers and employees alike are exposed to constant changes and stress. New managerial tactics and restructuring of companies - especially following the takeovers, mergers and acquisitions (status changes) - generally lead to reduction of workplaces and lay-offs. This creates a fertile ground for potential conflicts, stress and harassment at work. Research about harassment at work or mobbing after three decades has entered a new phase in which, after collecting a large number of date about incidence of abuse and its consequences around the world, there was a need to build comprehensive models for the understanding of the dynamics of mobbing and not only through their records, but also through establishing the reason and the way of their existence. The research results show that the labor organizations in the transition countries are quite favorable for the occurrence of mobbing. This research attempts to answer the question what behaviors are symptomatic of mobbing and to which socio-demographic characteristics of people most often tie. In this study, 358 respondents were included questioned by from several organizations working in the region of Macedonia. Respondents were questioned by authors who prepared a MQ questionnaire (Mobbing Questionnaire). The results show that the most common victims of mobbing are employees with length of service from 10 to 20 years old and poorly qualified staff. The most common mobbing behaviors are opposing the law and behaviors related to the exact work.
