Emerging American Legal Responses to Workplace Bullying

I’ve just posted a draft of a forthcoming law review essay, “Emerging American Legal Responses to Workplace Bullying,” that will appear in the Temple Political & Civil Rights Law Review later this year. The piece builds upon and updates my previous writings on workplace bullying and the law. It includes a discussion of recent legal and policy developments, especially those concerning the Healthy Workplace Bill. An appendix contains the latest model version of the HWB.

The essay is a follow up to my participation in Temple University’s excellent February conference, “Bullying: Redefining Boundaries, Responsibilities, and Harm.” In its published form, it will be part of a very promising theme issue of commentaries on bullying in different social contexts, emerging from presentations at the conference.

Loyal readers of this blog will be quite familiar with much of the contents. While not breaking any dramatic new ground, the piece offers an up-to-date assessment of efforts to make the American legal system more responsive to workplace bullying. It’s also relatively short (as law review articles go), so those who have been understandably reluctant to wade through my longer writings may find this one more accessible.

The draft may be downloaded without charge from my Social Science Research Network page here.

For a short recap on the Temple conference, go here.

  1. As usual, Professor Yamada, this is cogent, sensitove and useful. Many thanks. It helps enormously to know when patterns of peculiar behaviors mean more than “off days” and simple misunderstandings. Let’s all keep the faith!
