Bullying in the Workplace-Hello, its real.

As I focus on my next workshop on bullying in the workplace I hear of the recent news in Kansas. A mass shooting being contributed to workplace bullying. Here is the link to the Washington Post article. https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/national/mass-shootings-in-america/ It is a tragedy and sad that an individual gets so depressed they can’t control their surroundings and they have to grab a gun and hurt others for no reason.

I still don’t understand why there is not any enforcement or policies on the books in each state. What’s going on America, why can’t we pass the Healthy Workplace Bill. (http://healthyworkplacebill.org) to date there are 30 states that have introduced the bill but no traction. WHY? Help me understand WHY this bill has not passed?  It seems in early February Rhode Island has introduced the Healthy Workplace bill. Let’s hope for some success. http://www.workplacebullying.org/30/

So America, what are we going to do? It’s an issue that impacts employers, employees and their families. People are waiting to explode. Is there a plan?

Are you a victim, a witness or the bully? Share your thoughts and resources.
