Can Nevada Expand Discrimination Law To Fight Workplace Bullying?

Journalists often cite that 20 states have introduced the Healthy Workplace Bill but what goes unreported is that quite a few of these bills are radically different from the “model template” described in the press.  For instance, New Jersey, the only HWB bill currently active,  proposes that a regulatory agency impose a fine of not more than $25,000 on abusive employers.

CNN reports: “McDonald’s, the world’s largest hamburger joint, hasn’t fared so poorly. Last year, sales increased 12 percent. The largest U.S. retailer Wal-Mart hasn’t done so badly either. Even at the height of the recession in 2009, the company’s sales rose 7 percent.” Dear Walmarts – if you won’t share the pain then at least share the wealth!
