Utah committee briefed on Abusive Workplace Conduct


On June 18, 2014, 9 am, Room 20 House Building, the Economic Development and Workforce Services Interim Committee will hear testimony from Rep. Kevin J. Stratton and Utah State Coordinator Denise Halverson, PhD.

The committee will discuss: Abusive workplace conduct defined as malicious, repeated, health-harming mistreatment: verbal abuse, threats, humiliation, intimidation, work sabotage, exploitation of a known vulnerability, or retaliation for ethical conduct. An abusive work environment exists when an employer or one or more of its employees, acting with intent to cause pain or distress to an employee, subjects that employee to abusive workplace conduct that causes physical harm, psychological harm, or both. The committee will hear a presentation on the prevalence and effect of abusive work environments and discuss future legislative options.
