COVID-19 Pandemic Breaking News
Gearing Up for the Next Albany Lobbying Session for the New York State Healthy Workplace Bill Come 2021 to Make Workplace & Academic Bullying Illegal

Tuesday, December 29th, 2020


Michael Schlicht, Coordinator, New York Healthy Workplace Advocates, Posted on his Facebook Page, December 16.

“Due to the pandemic, lobbying in Albany will a bit different in 2021 with social distancing guidelines and the possibility of coming into contact with someone who may have Covid-19 and or be asymptomatic of infection.

I, that’s me, Gregg Morris, would prefer to trek to Abany, as I have in the past, to lobby but I’m on pause – after learning and being informed by Dr. Fauci, additional science pundits and other singsonging Cassandras about the virus expected to sweep across the country in waves these coming weeks, if the scourges aren’t already sweeping as I write this blog.

But because of all the folks ignoring the holiday-traveling-caveats, according to new reports and studies, I don’t want to venture too far from my abode in Jersey City, until I get vaccinated. And already there are reports that vaccination might not be available to me until the late spring if not early summer because of poor distribution of the vaccines. Continuing with Mike Schlicht.

We are highly encouraging people who wish to have their voices heard in Albany come January and beyond to write a statement of their experience about workplace bullying and/or sending us a statement why you would like to see the NYS Healthy Workplace Bill passed in 2021.

We will get these statements to all 213 legislators in Albany during the course of lobby season. If in-person meetings will be possible, we may ask for a few people to accompany us to them and have you talk about your experience of being bullied in the workplace. Statements and interest at in-person meetings can be sent to: info@nyhwa.org

Study Suggests Rude Behavior in the Workplace Is Contagious

Wednesday, August 31st, 2016

By Zawn Villines, GoodTherapy.org Correspondent

Incivility—defined as unsociable or rude behavior—in an often politically charged workplace can spread like a virus from one employee to another, according to a new study published in the Journal of Applied Psychology. Researchers say workplace unkindness can leave employees feeling psychologically fatigued, and that exhaustion can cause them to mistreat other workers. This cycle can lead to a workplace that some may consider emotionally abusive.
