Pima County Arizona takes a stand against workplace bullying

Thursday, May 30th, 2013

UPDATE: To write the best workplace bullying policy and enforcement procedures, go here.

On April 16, 2013 the Pima County (AZ) Board of Supervisors approved a new policy to prevent, identify and address workplace bullying. Pima, which includes the city of Tuscon, joins the growing list of U.S. counties (see Fulton County, Georgia) to adopt such measures. You can read the entire policy here.

Bullying defined:

Workplace bullying is intentional behavior intended to create an abusive work environment for an employee or employees. Bullying behavior is behavior in the workplace that a reasonable person would find hostile, offensive, and not obviously related to an employer’s legitimate business interests.

Features of the Policy:

• It can come from any direction — manager, co-worker, subordinate, appointing authority, elected official, vendor, contractor or member of the public.

• Witnesses, not just direct targets of bullying, may complain

• The list of illustrative examples is long, but nicely categorized as follows, bullying: in general, by supervisor, by coworkers, by sabotage and by shunning.
