Bullying - A Movement In Progress?
by Michael Fox
I have commented before on the British treatment of bullying, which seems a very wide door to open. A British HR consultancy has an article that gives an overview. However, I am beginning to see more and more written about it as a concept for concern, including this article about anti-bullying curriculum being developed both for grade schools and the college level. According to one author of such a course, bullying is the "fertile practice field" for sexual harassment that has its seeds in the high school setting. That may be the tie that gets into the employement law area, but employers will rue the day that either the legislature or judiciary start down this broad and ill defined path.
