By using questionnaire survey to gather data, the study measured, through teachers “lens” four factors antecedent to workplace bullying. The study area is in Nueva Ecija, Philippines. The study revealed that there is a weak correlation between the respondents’ personal attributes and descriptors of workplace bullying. Except on the presence of injustice in promotion where majority of elementary and secondary school teachers considered present in the workplace. The factor of injustice in promotion is embedded in Filipino culture. In general, factors leading to workplace bullying is not rampant in the respondents’ workplaces.
