Mobbing asbl (Luxembourg Association against moral harassment and stress at work) was created in 2001 by Mrs Monique BREISCH, Mr Lex BREISCH and Dr Carlo STEFFES. It is the result of a campaign to prevent moral harassment since 1998.
Mobbing asbl was created in collaboration with the LCGB trade union and the Syprolux railways union and has been under contract since 2003 by the Ministry of Labour, Employment and Social and Solidarity Economy.
The term "mobbing" is derived from the English word "to mob" and means to harass, attack, criticize someone.
According to the Convention of 25 June 2009 relating to harassment and violence at work, which was declared a general obligation by the Grand-Ducal regulation of 15 December 2009, moral harassment occurs when a person in the company commits deliberate, repeated and wrongful acts towards a worker or manager, which have as object or effect :

- lower absenteeism
- high staff flexibility
- and the like
All of the above points lead to an increase in the profitability of the company.
