Abstract Recent research indicates that people from ethnic minority groups are particularly vulnerable to workplace bullying, suggesting important, negative implications for individuals, groups and broader societies. In order to examine this phenomenon further, information about the circumstances of skilled migrants in Australia is presented. Theoretical frameworks are used to examine potential difficulties from the perspectives of migrants and their workplaces. Results of a pilot study based on a work preparation program for unemployed skilled migrants are presented, followed by conclusions about the vulnerability of skilled migrants and recommendations for future research.
