This study mainly aims to investigate the correlation between teachers' exposure to mobbing in their workplaces and their display of the act of silence. This study is based on a survey design where data from 312 teachers were collected and analyzed using correlation and regression analyses. Specifically, "The Structure and Dimensions of Workplace Violence Scale (SDWVS)" was used to measure the teachers' exposure to mobbing, and the "Workers Silence Behavior Scale (WSBS)" was used to determine the workers' level of silence. The findings of the research show that teachers are exposed to Mobbing Against Communication (MAC) and display the Silence Based on Self-Production and Fear (SBSF) behavior the most. There were significant correlations between all sub-dimensions of the mobbing scale and those of the silence scale. There is a significant, positive relationship between the behaviors of mobbing and silence. Teachers' silence behaviors may change depending on the type of mobbing. According to the study results, it is worth noting that mobbing experiences can predict silence behavior.
