Workplace Bullying - Understanding the Emerging Trends and Employer Risks

Understand the risks involved with all types of bullying in the workplace and learn preventative strategies to avoid liability and to keep your employees safe.

Bullying (also called 'mobbing' or 'psychological harassment') has been described as the silent epidemic in the workplace. Research shows that workplace bullying is increasing in part due to technology platforms, including social media, which makes it easier to spread degrading statements. Various state legislators in the U.S. are pushing for regulation, and some have been successful. In addition, recent case law in a number of foreign countries shed light on the 'global trend' of protecting employees against bullying behavior at work; the question is how the wave of change will play out in the U.S. This topic will educate you what types of behavior amount to workplace bullying, discuss recent foreign and American legal developments in protecting employees against workplace bullying and explain employers' increasing compliance obligations and potential liability risks. The content will conclude with suggested preventive strategies which may significantly reduce employers' potential risk and liability.
