The Healthy Workplace Bill has been introduced in the Massachusetts House of Representatives (2011-12 session) as House No. 2310, with Representative Ellen Story serving as lead sponsor.
The Healthy Workplace Bill provides targets of severe workplace bullying with a legal claim for damages and offers incentives for employers to act preventively and responsively toward bullying behaviors at work.
