Law Prof David Yamada – Healthy Workplace Bill author

Wednesday, July 11th, 2012

Another video produced by the Massachusetts Healthy Workplace Advocates. Suffolk Law Prof. David Yamada, author of the HWB as introduced in all states, describes the movement to pass the bill (in 2012, the bills are H 2310 and S 916) into law. The legislative session ends in July. Visit the MA State page at the national website to write letters to House and Senate members imploring them to pass the bill on the House and Senate floors.

Prof. Yamada’s affiliation with WBI began shortly after the birth of the movement. In 2000, he published the seminal legal article defining workplace bullying for the legal profession (Georgetown Law Journal). In 2001, he wrote the first version of the Healthy Workplace Bill that we then convinced lawmakers in California to introduce in 2003, the first of 21 states.

Since then, Prof Yamada has written extensively about the necessity of creating laws that benefit humans. He is part of the movement within the legal education community called “therapeutic jurisprudence.” A listing of his published papers available for free download from the SSRN website can be found here. He also writes a marvelous blog titled “Minding the Workplace.”

Greg Sorozan – MA Healthy Workplace Bill

Thursday, June 28th, 2012

Greg is affiliated with WBI in many ways. He attended Workplace Bullying University. Shortly thereafter, he applied his knowledge as union officer for a decade to lead, with Dr. Gary Namie, the first-ever Workplace Bullying University for Union members only.

Greg successfully bargained for the first-in-the-U.S. anti-bullying bargaining agreement provision (Mutual Respect 6A) for 21,000 NAGE Massachusetts State workers. And has used that provision and newer ones to combat bullying by the state.

Greg’s union joined forces with the Healthy Workplace Campaign to lobby for the Healthy Workplace Bill in his home state, Massachusetts. In 2012, H 2310 and S 916 are poised to be the first bills passed into law in the U.S. specifically because he is one of three State Co-Coordinators.

Finally, Greg is a dear friend to WBI. His marvelous ability to communicate using his background as a clinical social worker has extended the WBI message that workplace bullying is preventable and stoppable. He is one of the best ambassadors for the movement in the U.S.
