You Thought I Was Kidding About A Cause of Action For Bullying
by Michael Fox
So did I. Last Friday I commented here on a near 1 million pound award to a broker in London who was bullied by his boss, and jokingly remarked that I couldn't wait for the cause of action to cross the Atlantic. It was the other coast I should have been worried about. Check out the website of, I kid you not, The Workplace Bullying & Trauma Institute, which is seeking backing for legislation offered earlier this year in the California legislature which it claims could be the first anti-bullying legislation in the country. You can read the details of AB 1582 here. Truth is stranger than fiction.
