• Current laws do not address workplace bullying/abusive conduct

• 35% of adult Americans experience workplace bullying (WBI 2010 U.S. National Survey)

• Harm includes stress-related diseases (cardiovascular, immunological, gastrointestinal), plus anxiety, clinical depression and PTSD.

• Without laws, employers can legally ignore this abusive conduct, and do.

Please pass a state law that gives workers for the right to sue their employer for subjecting them to an abusive, malicious, health harming workplace. Allow employers who prevent and correct it to be free from liability. Adopt the Healthy Workplace Bill.

      The owner's sister went on a two-day rage-soaked bullying-tear and fired three of us on Friday (the owner was out-of-town). One of us was bullied relentlessly for two days, the rest of us became targets when we tried to reason with the bully. Two employees remain: the bully and her daughter. The verbal abuse and threats were unbelievable, and the owner has hidden her head in the sand! The state needs firm standards, and it needs them now.
