Pennsylvania state Rep. Mark Cohen, along with seven co-sponsors, introduced HB 1041 on April 21, 2015.
PA joins other states — Texas, New York, Massachusetts, and Minnesota — with versions of the WBI anti-bullying Healthy Workplace Bill (HWB) that include employer liability for enabling a health-harming abusive work environment.
In 2015 alone 11 bills have been introduced in 10 states. Since 2003, 29 states and two territories have introduced some version of the HWB.
If you are a Pennsylvanian, go to the State Page for all contact information for lawmakers — co-sponsors and the key members of the House Labor and Industry Committee. Thank sponsors and encourage committee leaders to hold a public hearing for the bill, HB 1041.

Pennsylvania (home state of WBI Director Gary Namie) became the 25th state to ever introduce the anti-bullying Healthy Workplace Bill (HWB).
Eleven brave Democratic sponsors back the bill, HB 1179, led by Rep. Mark Cohen. Let’s hope the bill gets a public hearing. You can help make that happen by visiting the PA State Page at the Healthy Workplace Campaign website. Use our E-Z Emailer to thank all of the sponsors and to encourage the members of the House Labor and Industry Committee to act on the bill before the end of the legislative session in 2014.
In 2013, PA makes 10 states currently carrying 13 versions of the HWB.
