Workplace bullying is NOT simply tough management. While it takes several forms, it is always repeated, health-harming mistreatment that disrupts the productive flow of work.
This interview of Dr. Gary Namie of the Workplace Bullying Institute explains this hateful behavior. While the WBI is located in Bellingham, Washington, the Drs. Ruth and Gary Namie, are psychologists with an international reputation. Thanks to their 15-year dedication to exposing this silent epidemic of abuse, they have helped to educate the United States and Canada to this key problem in the North American workforce.
While watching, keep in mind that status-blind (non-discriminatory) workplace bullying is presently legal! Most Americans believe that all harassment is against the law. Not so. Will Illinois become the first state to pass this progressive, common-sense law?
Please support Illinois legislation: "Abusive Work Environments Act," presently House Bill 374.
