    What Illinois agency will be investigating claims of workplace bullying?

    • Dr. Gary Namie

      Of course this bill died in the IL House of Representatives after Senate passage. However, no state agency would be involved in any claims. The Healthy Workplace Bill requires private legal action and keeps government out of the picture. Plaintiffs have to rely on the courts. Read all about it at the website for the Healthy Workplace Campaign.

    My comment is why would the IL house kill a bill designed to protect people. Maybe they need some bulling themselves to understand the stress the body goes through and the PTSD that comes with it. Or maybe we vote them all out of office.

    Of course Illinois killed the bill. This state is among the worst in workplace satisfaction and is intolerably deficient in how it treats employees.
