[US] The United States falls further behind in its handling of workplace bullying


 
27 AUG 2020

Every year the US reportedly falls further behind other countries in the international community when it comes to its handling of the important issue of workplace bullying. Years ago many industrialised countries - including Australia, Canada, Denmark, France, and Sweden - adopted workplace bullying prohibitions.

In July the International Labor Organization (ILO) ratified the first international treaty to address violence and harassment in the workplace. The treaty - the Violence and Harassment Convention, 2019 (C190) - was adopted a year ago. It was ratified through its adoption by two ILO members states, Uruguay and  Fiji. The United States - an ISO member - voted for the treaty but has not yet adopted it. Forbes examines C190 and current US law. (Link via original reporting)
