"Facts" and "Stats" From... The Work Place Bullying Institute
* What is Bullying?
It is mistreatment severe enough to compromise a targeted worker's health, jeopardize her or his job and career, and strain relationships with friends and family. It is a laser-focused, systematic campaign of interpersonal destruction. It has nothing to do with work itself. It is driven by the bully's personal agenda and actually prevents work from getting done. It begins with one person singling out the target. Before long, the bully easily and swiftly recruits others to gang up on the target, which increases the sense of isolation. April 25th, 2012
* Why Do We Need a Law?
Employers react to laws with internal policies. The real value of a law, and the true purpose of the WBI Healthy Workplace Bill, is to get employers to prevent bullying with policies and procedures that apply to all employees. The Bill, crafted by law professor David Yamada for the Healthy Workplace Campaign, gives good employers incentives to do the right thing by avoiding expensive litigation
Workplace Bullying is not incivility or mere disrespect Call it workplace bullying or abusive conduct or psychological violence or workplace aggression or mobbing or personal harassment, but call it something other than acceptable behavior (e.g., just management “style” or “personality clash”). Give it a strong name to match the seriousness of the impact on your life.
* Why is it a Problem?
It is a problem that has invaded the life of 37% adult Americans without invitation. In its more severe forms, it triggers a host of stress-related health complications -- hypertension, auto-immune disorders, depression, anxiety to PTSD. The person's immediate job and often career are often disrupted.
Often, it is the least skilled who attack the best and brightest workers because of the perceived threat they imagine. When the perpetrator has the power to deprive her or his target of a livelihood, and the economic and health security the job represents, bullying is an abuse of authority. Bullying also triggers many stress-related health problems (cardiovascular, gastrointestinal and immunological disorders and affects the brain with changes in cortical volume that affects all behavior), emotional injuries (clinical depression, PTSD), strain on social relationships (exclusion, estrangement, abandonment), economic damages (demotions, termination), threats to one’s personal identity, as well as a sense of injustice and betrayal.
Bullying of adults in the workplace is NOT about a raised eyebrow or a person’s overreaction to small incidents. The media and anti-anti-bullying drones want to convince the public that the workplace bullying movement is over-hyped.
We need Laws in place so Bullies can't get away with this type of aggression and bully another employee/co-worker to DEATH...
I know first hand ! I thank God I didn't give up when it happened to me, my grandson really needs me. I now realize, I do have value and damn good reasons to be alive ! I'm not alone in this.

To be picked on and bullied is just SHAMEFUL (to say the least). No one should ever have to endure what they did to me, under any circumstance. Bullies don't have the right to treat people the way I was treated. I was sick with autoimmune disorders and then being mentally TORTURED at work as well ! It was (almost) more than I could bare..... They succeeded in making me feel as if I had NO value whatsoever....
This type of behavior HAS to STOP !!! Let us unite and put the breaks on this insidious behavior.
I still have PTSD, although it is much better now. I have been searching for a forum these past two years, since it happened, hopefully this is IT !
Please sign this petition so WE can put an END to this mean spirited, life threatening behavior.... Sincerely, Beth Poore
