An Important Minding the Workplace Article About Bullying

Monday, May 4th, 2015

David Yamada, Professor of Law and founding Director of the New Workplace Institute at Suffolk University Law School, Boston, writes in his the latest issue of Minding the Workplace:

Workplace bullying is motivated by a desire to cause distress or harm to a target. In its most virulent forms, it can have a destructive impact on a target’s health and livelihood. Here is where the eliminationist instinct may be specially present, with a huge capacity for dehumanization. The target is regarded as something that can and should be rubbed out.

The Truth Won’t Set Him Free

Monday, April 27th, 2015

Below is another unsolicited email from Colleague Larry Shore, a Colleague whose veracity is always questionable in his passionate mission to thwart revelations about the sleaze in the Department of Film and Media Studies, Hunter College, City University of New York. He should be addressing the thuggery that takes place in D:F/M.

This particular email, printed below without comment, concerns: “The lead posterchild[sic] for your campaign has been Tami,” seen here at a department meeting when the Department Chair lost his cool and asked to be smacked: “Hit me,” he asked twice. Tami lost her cool, too.

There is so much prevaricating in the email below, that I will have to wait until classes end this semester to respond to it – if that’s what I decide to do.  Colleague Shore leaves out any mention of the phony Violence in the Workplace Complaint that was one of the results of that meeting when Tami pulled out her teenie-weenie digital camera and starting shooting video. The phony complaint is still resonating. More about that later.

Colleague Gold is not the poster child for my petition supporting the New York State Healthy Workplace Bill to make workplace and academic bullying illegal in NYC. But this is true: Too many Colleagues act like thugs and too many support the thuggery. More about this later.

Those complicit in bullying in D:F/M; all but one signed off on a phony Violence in the Workplace complaint. Logo revision in the works.
