Supporting the New York State Healthy Workplace Bill

August 13th, 2015

There is a lot of awareness about workplace bullying and that causes many to believe that something is being done on a grand scale to make it go away. For example, the NYS Healthy Workplace Bill may be coming up for a vote in the near future and that is a cause for optimism.

The truth is, however, that there isn’t the kind awareness and willingness of many elected officials to act despite studies showing that healthy workplaces are good for business and that workplace and academic bullying are detrimental to business and academic institutions that allow bullying to flourish.
