Filipina Nurse/Educator Laura Garcia: BULLYING SHOULD STOP IN YOU

Monday, July 3rd, 2017

Editor, OSM!

New York City – It may take some more time for the Healthy Workplace bill to pass in the empire state in order for victims of bullying to gain leverage due to political snags. But to stop bullying in workplaces, legal remedies could come secondary to education and individual consciousness. A nurse clinician had said that dealing with bullying has to start with the individual and those victimized to take responsibility of calling out their bullies.

The bullying culture in America has become an epidemic, said a report of the Fortune Magazine, and asked employers to take notice. On the legislative side, a petition for a Healthy Workplace bill was passed around the social media for petition* before the NY assembly and senate upon the initiation of Hunter assistant professor for film and media studies Gregg Morris. It has been seven years since the bill had been cooked up and legislators up in Albany needed more time and effort to pass it into law.

*Editor’s Note: The bill before the NYS legislature is being revised.

Workplace bullying has reached “epidemic level,” according to a new study, and legal analysts are advising companies to take heed.

The San Francisco-based Workplace Bullying Institute’s 2017 U.S. Workplace Bullying Survey, released earlier this month, estimated that 30 million American workers have been, or are now being, bullied at work, while another 30 million have witnessed it.

“These proportions are epidemic-level,” the report said. “The number of U.S. workers who are affected by bullying — summing over those with direct bullying and witnessing experiences — is 60.3 million, the combined population of six Western states.

Workplace bullying is “a form of workplace violence”  – Gary Namie, Director of the Workplace Bullying Institute.

Dear Gregg, if I may,

We have known each other for quite some time, and I was delighted in my new position to be reminded of your enduring commitments—to students, to great journalism, and to causes that matter in the workplace. I see that you had written the Chancellery about your Moveon.org petition to support the New York State Healthy Workplace Bill, and that you are calling for CUNY to be a “leader in promoting healthy workplaces.”
