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.

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.

The internet as we know it is nearly 30 years old. Sure, the web is a bit more complicated — and more intricately connected — than it was 30 years ago, but it’s no less of a modern Wild West today than it was in the 90s (although you may need to dig deep into the darknet to experience the real gun-slinging). The freedoms and anonymity  we enjoy online are, however, constantly under scrutiny, by both governments and businesses alike.

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.
