“Systemic bullying, hazing and abuse generally are identified with poor, weak or toxic organizational cultures. Cultures that are toxic have stated ethical values that are espoused but not employed, and other non-ethical values which are operational, dominant, but unstated.

Such cultures thrive when good people are silent, silenced, or pushed out; when bad apples are vocal, retained, promoted, and empowered; and when the neutral majority remain silent in order to survive. Those who are most successful in such a toxic culture are those who have adapted to it, or adopted it as their own”. (McKay, Arnold, Fratzl & Thomas, 2008)

"Suspended academic may face police probe "

STOP PRESS

"Suspended academic may face police probe

POLICE may be called in to investigate a Newcastle University academic, Jesse Sheng Jin, over expense claims made against research grant money, according to Fair Work Australia documents.
Professor Jin's barrister, Tony Slevin, told the Fair Work Australia tribunal that his client, who denies any wrongdoing, faced not only possible charges of serious misconduct but also referral to police and the Independent Commission Against Corruption."

What is going on here????
