    How far behind the U.S. when it comes to legislating workplace abuse

    How far behind the U.S. when it comes to legislating workplace abuse

    The U.S. is one of the last industrialized nations to address workplace bullying legally.

    But we're hoping to change that. On June 22, 2021, the Massachusetts Joint Committee on Labor and Workforce Development will hear testimony on the Dignity at Work Act (DAWA).

    Here are three ways that you can take action TODAY:
    1. Sign the petition: bit.ly/passDAWA
    2. Get action alerts: bit.ly/DAWAalerts
    3. Testify on behalf of DAWA in Massachusetts on Tuesday, June 22, 10:30am ET. Sign-up to testify at bit.ly/DAWAtestifyMA (sign-up deadline: Wednesday, June 16 at 1:00pm ET). Get ready by joining our testimony training on Tuesday, June 15 at 7:00pm ET: bit.ly/getready615

    Email info@workplacebullyingcoalition.org for more information.

    In this episode, I talk U.S. and international laws around workplace bullying to help you understand how far behind the U.S. is.

    Opinion: I worry about the ability to inspire with demands for in-person work

    Opinion: I worry about the ability to inspire with demands for in-person work

    Control doesn't breed trust or inspire. In fact. it reinforces a hierarchy and creates a culture of fear. Insisting on in-person work when it's not required for the job is one means of control. In this episode, I talk about a Washington Post opinion piece from a CEO who threatens her employees' status for not coming into the office. Luckily, her employees spoke up.

    Hazing: one major sign of a toxic workplace or industry

    Hazing: one major sign of a toxic workplace or industry

    When those who operate on ego look to build their base of followers, they often resort to looking for obedience. It's all about power and control for them. In this episode, I talk about grooming and hazing — tactics designed to test obedience — based on a target's story in the entertainment industry.
