Update on Massachusetts workplace bullying legislation

As I reported earlier on this blog (https://newworkplace.wordpress.com/2009/03/23/workplace-bullyin-bill-introduced-in-massachusetts-legislature/), the Healthy Workplace Bill has been introduced in Massachusetts as Senate Bill No. 699 by State Senator Joan Menard.

For those who are interested in supporting the bill, I’ll be hosting a meeting of the newly formed Massachusetts Healthy Workplace Advocates on Thursday, April 16, at 6 pm.  Please e-mail me at david_yamada@yahoo.com for details.

The bill has been referred to the Joint Committee on Labor and Workforce Development (http://www.mass.gov/legis/comm/j43.htm), whose membership includes the following legislators:

SENATORS

McGee of Third Essex and Middlesex – Chair
Spilka of Second Middlesex and Norfolk – Vice-Chair
Buoniconti of Hampden
O’Leary of Second Worcester
Menard of First Bristol and Plymouth
Hedlund of Plymouth and Norfolk

Fresolo of Worcester
