North Dakota becomes 27th state to tackle workplace bullying
North Dakota lawmakers, at the urging of the largest public sector union (North Dakota United) in the right-to-work state, introduced HB 1428. The bill simply states that public sector employers must address harassment (implying that the harassment is both unlawful (based on membership in protected status groups) and lawful (ostensibly workplace bullying)). The one-paragraph bill, sponsored by 8 House Representatives and 4 Senators sailed through its House committee and won the floor vote in the House 91-0. It is on its way to the Senate.
North Dakota is the 27th state to introduce some sort of anti-bullying legislation for the workplace.
