This week, the Sports Lawyers Association (SLA) hosts its 40th annual conference in Chicago. Attendees include attorneys associated with all major professional sports leagues, universities and agents for pro athletes.
Presenting details about the Jonathan Martin/Miami Dolphins bullying case are Wm. David Cornwell, Sr., Gordon & Rees, LLP and Dr. Gary Namie, Director, Workplace Bullying Institute. Both Mr. Cornwell and Dr. Namie were retained to assist Mr. Martin. The NFL investigation, conducted by attorney Ted Wells and its report released on Feb. 14, 2014, incorporated facts about workplace bullying conveyed to Mr. Wells by Dr. Namie.
This is a challenging time for professional sports. All are reacting to racism and off-field abusive conduct.

Nov. 25 UPDATE: We are 40% of the way toward our goal — 65 donors — 49 days remain
Our last national survey on workplace bullying was done in 2010. The WBI is currently seeking donations to fund a new 2014 U.S. Workplace Bullying Survey. The goal is modest (you can give a small amount and still make it happen).

WBI colleague Dr. Matt Spencer has written his first book. He’s applied his 32 years experience as a Superintendent, Associate Superintendent, teacher and coach in public schools to expose the problem of School Boards run amok. Here’s a description.
Exploiting Children: School Board Members Who Cross the Line
By Matthew Spencer, Ed.D.
Published Sept. 22, 2013 by Rowman & Littlefeld
From the Foreword
Hold onto your hats, dear reader. This book is not for the faint of heart. Defenders of the status quo will be rattled. Similarly offended will be the apologists for scheming citizens who occupy seats on local school boards merely to have a pulpit for propagating their mix of anti-public school ideology and a naked desire for personal aggrandizement.
This book comes from the heart of a man with an indefatigable commitment to educating children. He has worked in districts that became the hell he describes in these pages. Authenticity and integrity leap off of every page.
America’s citizens want children to receive a high-quality education in clean, orderly and safe schools staffed with quality teachers, support staff and courageous educational leaders. In many communities, such a school experience is something the students will never have.
Why? One or more members of the governing board desire to use their elected position for personal gain. They are Exploiters. Some desire to exploit a little. Others crave total domination of the school system and become the petty tyrants of education.

A WBI Affiliate asks for your help if you work in K-12 American schools:
Please complete this survey that is part of my Doctoral dissertation through Aurora University, Aurora, IL.
The topic is “ A Systems Approach to Workplace Bullying in the K-12 Public Education Setting”.
Participants are invited to complete the survey regarding their observations or experiences in any of the roles in workplace bullying in the school setting. The opportunity to participate in an interview (either in person or by phone) regarding the experiences is available by providing the information at the end of the survey. Non-American respondents are not eligible for an interview at this time.
Thank you for helping.
