New bills to combat workplace bullying introduced: NY & WV
The 2013-2014 2 year legislative cycle has begun in most states. The WBI-Healthy Workplace Bill State Coordinators and citizen lobbyists are active. The Healthy Workplace Bill is authored by Suffolk University Law Professor David Yamada, a WBI affiliate. Groups of volunteer Healthy Workplace Advocates operate in 39 states.
As of Valentine’s Day, 9 versions of our bill have been introduced in 7 states. The most recent additions are New York (A 4965) and West Virginia (HB 2054).
You can track progress of each bill, learn when new bills are added, and sign up to help at the Healthy Workplace Bill website.
