State of Maine enters anti-bullying legislative fight with HP 845
Maine State House Representative Sara Gideon introduced HP 845 today. The “Act to Protect Employees from Abusive Work Environments” has 7 House co-sponsors and 2 Senate co-sponsors. Maine becomes the 24th state to ever introduce this legislation. To date, no state has yet passed the bill into law.
HP 845 is the 12th version of the WBI anti-bullying Healthy Workplace Bill introduced in 2013. A total of 9 states have currently active bills.
The bill is our attempt to get U.S. employers to take repeated, health-harming abusive misconduct as seriously as they currently must address illegal forms of discriminatory misconduct.
