Washington State Hearing for Healthy Workplace Bill – Jan. 24, 2018

Thursday, January 25th, 2018

Jan. 24, 2018

WA State Senate Labor & Commerce Committee Hearing on SB 6435, the Healthy Workplace Bill.

It is the anti-workplace bullying legislation written by David Yamada, Law Professor, Suffolk University, Boston, for the Workplace Bullying Institute. The principal sponsor is Sen. Annette Cleveland with co-sponsoring Senators Karen Keiser, Patty Kuderer and Rebecca Saldana. Five supporters testified, including WBI Director Gary Namie by phone.

You might find the two business lobbyists who opposed the bill for its reference to “vicarious liability.” Had they known existing law since 1998, they would understand vicarious liability places responsibility on employers for misconduct of their agents — employees and managers.

Phew! They fixed the bill, first in the House, then the Senate thanks to Sen. Gretchen Whitmer leading the way.

The goofy provision was originally inserted to appease the Michigan branch of the radical hate group American Family Association. That group’s agenda is anti-homosexual.

Let’s hope for the best. The Governor promised to sign the revised bill into law in 2011.

These radical hate groups, masquerading as “conservative” “Christian” groups invaded our anti-bullying legislation for adults (the Healthy Workplace Bill) in Illinois in 2009. They are tricky, but hateful nevertheless.
