In this article, apart from paying special attention to the definition of this phenomenon, we are interested in knowing the conditions that foster the emergence of this conflict, and we bring new contributions.We analyze the conflict phase of the mobbing process at work, since we understand that the resolution will be determined by the moment in which it will be tackled.
