Each year anti-bullying laws are introduced in states throughout the country, and for good reason: with the increase in violence in the workplace, more and more states are looking at the role that workplace bullying plays in creating unhealthy and potentially unsafe work environments.  Please join SEAC for an enlightening breakfast meeting discussing how employers can proactively address workplace disputes so as to reduce bullying in the workplace, and strategies for how employers should investigate and respond to allegations and complaints of conduct that might be bullying.
