Veteran Mediator and expert in Workplace Bullying declares mediation inappropriate

HWB Texas State Coordinator, Esque Walker, Ph.D., a Certified Distinguished Mediator, writes a compelling argument against using mediation in cases of workplace bullying. Her position is based on the classification of bullying as a form of interpersonal violence.

Read and download her complete essay at the Workplace Bullying Institute blog. Also read the results of a 2011 WBI Survey asking bullied targets about the outcome of their mediation experience.

Mediation fails. Part of current employer “solutions” is to mandate mediation. Current employer solutions without a law are failures.

Passage of the HWB into law will provide options for individuals targeted for bullying at work.
