I’ll be heading out of the office on several occasions during the coming months for speaking engagements, mostly on workplace bullying and related issues of labor relations. For programs accepting registrations, I’ve provided links.
Massachusetts Association of Registered Nurses, State House legislative forum, Boston, MA (March 22, 2013) — I’ll be discussing the Healthy Workplace Bill, the anti-bullying legislation I’ve authored, filed in the current session of the MA legislature, House Bill No. 1766, with Representatives Ellen Story (HWB lead sponsor) and Kay Khan (HWB co-sponsor). MARN is among the organizational endorsers of the HWB.
Northeastern University School of Law, Symposium on Worker Misclassification, Boston, MA (March 22, 2013) — Sponsored by the Northeastern Law Journal, this is shaping into a very good program on the widespread problem of misclassifying workers as independent contractors and other non-employees to avoid paying wages and benefits. I’ll be speaking on the legal status of unpaid interns.
City University of New York Law School, Faculty Forum, Queens, NY (April 10, 2013) — CUNY Law is dedicated to educating future public interest lawyers. I’ll be speaking on “Law Professors as Intellectual Activists.”
New York State Psychological Association, Workshop on bullying & violence at work, New York, NY (April 28, 2013) — This workshop is sponsored by the NYSPA’s Division of Organizational, Consulting, and Work Psychology and will be held at John Jay College of Criminal Justice. I’ll join Dr. Gary Namie of the Workplace Bullying Institute to talk about various aspects of workplace bullying.
Work, Stress and Health Conference 2013, Los Angeles, CA (May 16-19, 2013) — Co-sponsored by the American Psychological Association, National Institute for Occupational Safety & Health, and Society for Occupational Health Psychology, this multidisciplinary, biennial conference is one of my favorites. I’ll be on panels discussing low-cost approaches to helping targets of workplace bullying (May 18) and the use of social media to promote healthy workplaces (May 18).
