Bullying. From school playgrounds to corporate conference rooms to international arenas, bullying is an unfortunate reality in today's society.
We all agree that bullying needs to end. When it comes to bullying in the workplace, some think that legislation is the answer. Anti-bullying legislation has been under consideration in several states since California's original proposal back in 2003.
Others disagree, arguing that anti-bullying legislation will not only fail to solve the problem, but could actually have a harmful effect on employers and employees alike.
In this episode, we discuss workplace bullying with Suzanne Lucas (the RealEvilHRLady). We talk about the extent of the workplace bullying problem, some proposed legislation, and why anti-workplace bullying legislation won't solve the problem. We'll also discuss some practical ways to end workplace bullying.
