Pass "Healthy Workplace Bill" (S3863/A4965)
This petition had 123 supporters
The bill addresses abusive work situations that are not covered by civil rights laws or other legislation.
We have several laws to protect certain groups of people designated as “protected classes.” For example, there are laws to protect those who experience age discrimination or sexual harassment.
However “status blind” harassment (i.e. harassment that is not specifically prohibited by law for a named “protected class” of people) is FOUR TIMES more prevalent than “protected class” harassment.
In plain language, this means that currently there is no legal recourse for 80% of the people who are experiencing repeated abusive mistreatment at work.
A 2014 Zogby Poll found that over 93% of working New Yorkers (that is 8.4 million people) support enactment of a law that would protect all workers from repeated abusive mistreatment at work.
A Voice of Reason
Everly Brown, who is running for the NYS Senate, District 10, is committed to passing this bill.
Unlike James Sanders, the incumbent he is facing, EverlyBrown will actively do all in his power to make the Healthy Workplace Bill a LAW. Right now heis gathering signatures to be hand-delivered to State Senators Dean Skelos (Republican leader) and Jeff Klein (Democratic leader) to demand that the Healthy Workplace Bill be passed now!
Everly Brown will hand-deliver the petitions by walking from SenatorSkelos’s office in Rockville Centre, Long Island to SenatorKlein’s office in the Bronx! Sound crazy? Sometimes it takes someone to go the extra mile (or 40 miles) to GET THINGS DONE.
On August 11, 2014 you can watch Everly Brown walk to champion our basic human right to be free from repeated abusive mistreatment at work.
Workplace bullying mimics the behaviors associated with domestic violence, and this form of violence can no longer be passively tolerated by society.
Everly Brown is an advocate for the people. Please be an advocate for Everly Brown.
