Office Bully Takes One on the Nose: Developing Law on Workplace Abuse
by Jason Habinsky and Christine M. Fitzgerald, New York Law Journal, Jan. 21, 2011
Quotes from the article we appreciate most:
“with bullying becoming front-page news across the nation, it is just a matter of time before the law adapts”
“it seems inevitable that some form of the HWB will become law, whether in New York or elsewhere, and that once the first state adopts an anti-bullying statute others will shortly follow.”
Read the entire original article, including case law examples illustrating how bullying is NOT covered by existing laws! We’ve always told employers this is true, but employers describe themselves as victims. They want no regulations and no legal liability no matter how severely they mistreat workers. Our Healthy Workplace Bill threatens only abusive employers. Good employers have nothing to fear.
