Here are two new websites for those who want to learn more about, and advocate for, the Healthy Workplace Bill, the legislation I drafted that creates a legal claim for targets of severe workplace bullying and provides incentives for employers to act preventively and responsively toward bullying at work:
National Site — Healthy Workplace Bill (www.healthyworkplacebill.org)
This is the new website of the national legislative campaign, spearheaded by the Workplace Bullying Institute. Here you’ll find information about Healthy Workplace Bill and the various state campaigns to enact it.
Massachusetts Site — Massachusetts Healthy Workplace Advocates (www.mahealthyworkplace.com)
As noted before on this blog, the Healthy Workplace Bill has been introduced in Massachusetts as Senate Bill No. 699 (Senator Joan Menard, lead sponsor) for the 2009/10 session. Thanks to Deb Falzoi for her superb work in creating this site!
Massachusetts supporters of the HWB — Save the Dates — A legislative hearing for the bill will be held on Wednesday, January 27. We also will be holding a meeting for supporters of the bill on Thursday, January 7. Details to follow!
