Rhode Island Healthy Workplace Bill

Support the Healthy Workplace Bill, which creates a legal claim for bullying targets who can establish that they were subjected to malicious, health-harming behavior. It also provides defenses for employers who act preventatively and responsively with regard to bullying and includes provisions to discourage frivolous claims. http://www.rihealthyworkplace.org

Why is this important?

I've seen bullying happen in the workplace.


Reasons for signing

  • Earlier this year I was the target of two bullies who led a mob against a new Dean. I stood up for her and against them. She left after 10 months of bullying. I remain and so do the bullies.
  • Im in Fall river and today was screamed at, told im Full of Sh** , humiliated in front of other employees and accused of lying. I was sent home with no pay. We should go to work to be verbally, mentally or emotionally abused. Shortly after I find out another female was also verbally attacked by the same supervisor. We are filing grievences but know he will just keep doing things to make it hell there.
  • Work place Bullying should not be tolerated! I've seen the health adverse side affects it has caused family.
