Workplace Bullying

(Webinar Length:  1hr 10min)

Overview:

Bullying (also called “mobbing” or “psychological harassment”) has been described as the silent epidemic in the workplace. Research shows that workplace bullying is increasing, in part due to technology platforms, including social media, which make it easier to spread degrading statements.  Employees may react more adversely to emotional abuse than to overt sexual or race harassment. Various state legislators are pushing for regulation.  In addition, recent case law developments open the door for expanding existing harassment theories to cover workplace bullying in the absence of regulations.
This webinar will explain what types of conduct amount to workplace bullying, recent foreign and American legal developments in protecting employees against workplace bullying and increasing employers’ compliance obligations. The webinar will conclude with suggested preventive strategies which may significantly reduce employers’ potential risk and liability.

  • What employee conduct amounts to workplace bullying

  • What to do to create the appropriate working environment and limit legal risk and liability

  • Human Resource Managers
