What is a bully?
A bully is a person who attempts to harm or intimidate others. Usually the bully picks on people that the bully feels are defenseless.
Bullying is any unwanted aggressive behavior(s) by another youth or group of youths that involves an
observed or perceived power imbalance and is repeated multiple times or is highly likely to be repeated. Bullying may inflict harm or distress on the targeted youth including physical, psychological, and social harm.
Is Bullying illegal?
No, bullying is not illegal. However, California law requires employers with 5 or more employees to train all supervisory employees on “Abusive Conduct. ”
Under AB 2053, which was added to California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) in 2015.
California Bullying Law (Government Code 12950.1 – Abusive Conduct)
(2) For purposes of this section, “abusive conduct” means conduct of an employer or employee in the workplace, with malice, that a reasonable person would find hostile, offensive, and unrelated to an employer’s legitimate business interests. Abusive conduct may include 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, or the gratuitous sabotage or undermining of a person’s work performance. A single act shall not constitute abusive conduct, unless especially severe and egregious.
How can I stop bullying at work?
First, report the harassment to a supervisor or Human Resources. Under California law, employers are required to provide a harassment-free workplace. HR will conduct an investigation and if the complaint has merit, the company should discipline the harasser. If the harassment continues or is not corrected, the employee has the right to request assistance from a governmental agency.
How can I file a complaint?
If an employee feels that their employer has failed to protect them from workplace bullying, they have a right to file a complaint with the California Department of Fair Employment & Housing (DFEH).
