Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Is workplace bullying illegal in the United States?

Generally, it is not. At this time, state and federal laws do not cover workplace bullying. Anti-bullying laws, known as Healthy Workplace bills (HWB), have been introduced by 28 legislatures (26 States and 2 Territories).  Tennesse passed a Healthy Workplace Act in May 2014 designed to curb verbal abuse at work by making public-sector employers immune to bullying-related lawsuits if they adopt a policy that complies with the law. The law applies only to public-sector employers.  each year, more and more legislative support occurs for Healthy Workplace bills.
