As findings from international samples indicate, because of the specificity of education tasks, teachers find themselves under special risk of being subjected to workplace bullying. The aim of the present study (N = 633) was to identify risk factors of being subjected to workplace bullying within educational sector. Participants (teachers from 55 different schools) completed NAQ questionnaire and a questionnaire measuring the bullying risk factor in education. Results indicate that 3.6% of teachers have been bullied. The most important risk factors of being subjected to bullying in education were the quality of the head’s school inspection, perceiving bullying as “work overload and excessive control”, targets’ individual differences, and job satisfaction.
