Anti-bullying Healthy Workplace Bill in 20th state
The Healthy Workplace Campaign hit a milestone on Feb. 10 with the announcement that Maryland became the 20th state to introduce a version of the anti-bullying Healthy Workplace Bill since 2003. The campaign began in California and has spread throughout the country. Senate bill 600 (Sen. Raskin) is Maryland’s first of its kind. Earlier in the week, West Virginia introduced HB 3015 (Del. Longstreth), a first for that state, making WV the 19th state in the country. New 2011 versions of the HWB were also introduced in New York, Vermont, Washington, New Jersey and Nevada. Currently there are 9 active bills in 7 states. Right now most of our energy is drawn to the legislative campaign. Help us if you can. Stay tuned. More coming this year.
