Last week we talked about the state of HR Technology, and this week we’re talking about workplace bullying and the legal and moral implications.
Wow. According to one recent study, 96% of American employees experience bullying in the workplace, and the nature of that bullying is changing thanks to social media and online interactions.
Even though the employment world is already heavily regulated, one major gap remains: workplace bullying. No state prohibits bullying, unless it relates to a protected group (such as race, sex or disability).
But workplace bullying has harmful, reverberating effects, not only on the victims, but also on the witnesses. The good news is that we don’t need to wait for a law to be enacted to prevent and respond to bullying.
Progressive employers who want to be successful ensure their cultures are bully-free. This week’s guest will talk about how.
Join #TChat co-creators and hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn more about workplace bullying with this week’s guest: Jonathan Segal, an employment lawyer and partner with the international law firm Duane Morris LLP, as well as an active TalentCulture #TChat community member.

On this episode of The Workplace Reality Show we will highlight stories of bullying bosses and the signs you should look for when dealing with a bad boss.
Do employers have an obligation to protect victims of domestic violence? Does domestic violence show up at work? What about the office bully? Is that another form of victimization? Join us Saturday as guest Helen LaVan, PhD, helps us learn more about the bully at work, the fallout from experiencing domestic violence and the work place, the role of the employers. LaVan is a Professor of Management at DePaul University, where she researches and publishes articles on employment discrimination and employee relations. Her recent publications have been about workplace bullying, the ethics of the Second Amendment (forthcoming), and the spillover of domestic violence into the workplace. She is a licensed counselor (LPC) in the State of Illinois.

SISFI hosts 5 part series on “The Human Impacts of Workplace Bullying” on SISFI Radio to highlight the real challenges (physical, emotional, financial, societal, family, behavioral) faced by victims on various levels and aspects of their lives, and to raise the levels of education, awareness and availability of and need for more resources for them. The series also focus on the impediments, bias and broken corporate policies and judicial system that continues to allow the cycle of abuse in workplaces because the laws do not effectively address the topic of “abusive conducts” for victims to have the protection, safe haven and fear from retribution for speaking out on their behalf against their abuser.
The series runs through March and April focusing on the ripple effects on family and friends of the victims as well as on existing and new legislations in effect to provide updates and developments on them across the US. Guest speakers includes advocates, victims, legal counsel and legislators across the US who are fighting to pass legislation for the Healthy Workplace Bills and corporate policies to put an end to this kind of abuse and behavior.
The 5 parts are scheduled as followed:
March 10th, 8pm, pt. 1 ~ Introduction to Workplace Abuse/Bullying
March 17th, 8pm, pt. 2 ~ The Criminality and Victimology of Workplace Abuse

March 31st, 8pm, pt. 4 ~ The Laws and Legalities of Workplace Abuse

The series wraps up with the "Workplace Abuse Victimology Empowerment Summit“ on April 22nd, 1-4pm. We are hosting the summit online due to the active involvement, interest and accessibility for a national collaborative.

In today’s interview I will be talking to E.G. Sebastian on workplace bullying.
E.G. is an international speaker, who speaks six languages, and presents extensively on behavior and personality related topics, such as conflict management, effective communication, dealing with difficult people, and dealing with bullying.
In this interview I will ask him why workplace bullying is an important topic - in fact so important that he decided to write a book on it. I will also ask him about:
The types of people who are most likely to become targets of bullying What can one do to stop the mistreatment - stop the bullying Is there anything one's manager can do to help the employee in these situations? How can one report bullying to their superiors most effectively? This is a very important topic. I think we should all listen to this interview.
Bullying in schools has tremendous coverage, but what about employees or bosses that are bullying staff or each other?
Business Success Coach, Donna Price, will share her strategies for dealing with bullying employees and bosses.
Bullies don’t just exist on the playground. They also sit in the manager’s chair or the CEO’s office. Bully leadership is sharp, authoritative, angry, and feels uncomfortable to those in contact with it. Bully leaders believe that they are rallying the troops, getting everyone on board. But that is not what happens. The bully leader barks out orders, threaten consequences and uses strong, harsh statements to “motivate” people to do what the leader wants.
Join the conversation, and tell your stories.
