Update Info on Anti-Workplace Bullying Efforts in Albany

There was a lobbying trip to Albany Monday and Friday. A few thumbs up. But more thumbs needed, of course. This is a quickie report. More in the works.

From the facebook page of NYHWA:


The New York Healthy Workplace Advocates is a grassroots organization of citizen lobbyists that seeks to introduce, support and pass legislation via the Healthy Workplace Bill that adequately addresses workplace bullying and psychological violence in the workplace as well as to educate employers and employees on the costs of harboring a workplace bully to create a “win-win” environment where the employer and employee can work together to meet organizational goals.

Workplace bullying is usually repeated abuse of a psychological nature. While bullying can escalate into physical violence, it can be harmful to employees even if it never goes that far, and it can be extremely detrimental to the victim’s work performance.
