Workplace Bullying

Tuesday, Mar. 20, 2012

Lynn Lieber, Esq.

The repeated infliction of verbal abuse, such as the use of derogatory remarks, insults, and epithets; verbal or physical conduct that a reasonable person would find threatening, intimidating or humiliating; and the gratuitous sabotage or undermining of an employee's work performance.

Prevent bullying that leads to workplace harassment! Researchers are finding bullying more harmful than sexual harassment. Bullying in the workplace can increase turnover, reduce productivity, incite workplace harassment lawsuits and even escalate into workplace violence.

In this workshop, SCU Law School Alumna, Lynn Lieber Esq. will discuss the cost of bullying in the workplace and describe the steps an organization should take if bullying does occur. It also covers how Human Resources can train workers to recognize and report bullying before it turns into illegal workplace harassment.
