I’m heading to Albany this spring vacation and you will be one topic of discussion¬†with legislators:

If the NYS Healthy Workplace Bill becomes law, a business that does not put policies and procedures in place that correct and prevent workplace bullying, the employer becomes legally liable financially for the bullies behavior. They can be sued by the target in Civil Court because bullying will be against the law.

If the employer DOES enforce policies, and the bully stops, situation solved. If the bully doe not stop his or her behavior, then the employer is held harmless and the target can then sue the bully directly in Civil Court.

There can be financial consequences (awards) directly payable by the bully to the target.

Just thought you should know what’s in store for you.
