Minding the Work Place by David Yamada: Toxic work Environments in the Social Justice, Non-profit Sector

Monday, April 1st, 2019

March 29, 2019 – “I have long insisted that workplace bullying and other forms of worker mistreatment are not limited to the big bad corporate sector. The non-profit sector has its own problems with bullying and toxic work environments. Recent reporting about working conditions at two prominent social justice non-profits, the Southern Poverty Law Center and Amnesty International, are sadly reinforcing this reality.”

Read all about it here.

David Yamada

David Yamada is a tenured Professor of Law and Director of the New Workplace Institute at Suffolk University Law School in Boston. David is an internationally recognized authority on workplace bullying, and he is author of model anti-bullying legislation — dubbed the Healthy Workplace Bill — that has become the template for law reform efforts across the country.

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.”

Time for a Fatwa?

NYC’s anti-discrimination employment laws regarding hostile workplaces are broader than state and federal laws and can provide redress for targets/victims of workplace-academic bullying even though there are no (at least for now) city, state and federal laws against this particular form of workplace bigotry, Commissioner Carmelyn Malalis said in an interview.

Workplace Bullying and Ethical Leadership

Saturday, November 14th, 2015

Hey, Colleague Larry Shore: Shouldn’t D:F/M keep a copy of this article at the ready along with its Robert’s Rules of Order* (even if D:F/M feigns following RRoO).

In a piece he wrote several years ago, “Workplace Bullying and Ethical Leadership” (Journal of Values-Based Leadership, 2008), Professor David Yamada  “suggested that a strong test of an organization’s values and ethics is how it handles a case of severe workplace bullying perpetrated by one of its leading executives or ‘rainmakers.’ I stand behind that point today. Institutions that sweep work abuse under the rug because the perpetrator is at or near the top of the organizational chart are among the lowest of the low.”

Wooly Bully Update: Banzai!

Thursday, November 12th, 2015

This message below posted on the Hunter-L and FM-L listservs November 8.

Because of an ally who reached out to American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten, my petition supporting the NYS Healthy Workplace Bill to make workplace/academic bullying illegal has shifted into high gear, leading to a propitious moment to revise strategies, from the simple to the strategic. Simple, such as, Wooly Bully Update to be replaced by The Dirty Linen Update: Silence=Complicity.
