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 email@example.com for details.
