California Cities & Counties Recognized Freedom From Workplace Bullies Week

Tuesday, October 24th, 2017

The California Healthy Workplace Advocates, CHWA, is one of the most active state-based groups in the nation. They are volunteer citizen lobbyists for the WBI anti-bullying Healthy Workplace Bill. They have members statewide. Monthly meetings are held in Sacramento. Details here.)

WBI established Freedom Week from Workplace Bullies Week, the third week in October during Domestic Violence Awareness and Bullying Prevention Month. CHWA routinely solicits proclamations from California cities and counties that declare the municipalities’ endorsement of the following principles:
• government has an interest in promoting the social and economic well-being of its citizens
• that well-being depends upon the existence of healthy and productive employees working in safe and abuse-free work environments
• abusive work environments are costly for employers with consequences including reduced productivity, absenteeism, turnover, injuries
• protection from abusive work environments should apply to every worker, and not be limited to legally protected class status based only on race, color, gender, national origin, age or disability

Bullying, the Valentine’s Day curse

Monday, February 14th, 2011

Our friends at the California Healthy Workplace Advocates, who lobby to enact the anti-bullying Healthy Workplace Bill distribute every Valentine’s Day their message to California lawmakers at the Capitol that Workplace Bullying Breaks Hearts. In fact, the link between bullying and cardiovascular disease is strong and undeniable. So, on this day of saturation in all things about love, CHWA reminds us that no one is safe as long as workplace bullying continues. You can purchase the slogan as a button or magnet at our merchandise store.
