Healthy Workplace NYS Bill S3863 Passes Muster

This past Monday, June 3, Healthy Workplace Bill, S3863 was passed by the New York State Senate Labor Committee. More about this later but I had this to say …



… that was, I emailed the following message to all members of the Labor Committee and posted on Hunter-L, the main College listerv for campus information:

I am a tenured assistant professor at Hunter College and I am writing to ask you to support S3863. I have experienced serious workplace bullying at this campus and have filed numerous complaints with or sought help from campus institutions that proved to be inadequate, such as the Ombuds Office, College Senate, Provost Office, the Deans Office and even the union that is suppose to represent me, the Professional Staff Congress. [More info about the Ombudsman]

By exposing the bullies regarding my situation, I managed to develop a measure of protection at a costly price but no staff nor instructor, regardless if they’re full time or part-time, should have to endure the abuses I experienced as well as witnessed happening to staff and other instructors, tenured and non-tenured and part-time, bullied and intimidated.

This is a great college community but some areas definitely need improvement. My concerns have been well documented but since were are approaching the 11th hours, I won’t burden you with copies of files and complaints.

I simply hope that you will support S3863. And I can be called upon at any time if additional testimony is needed.
