Abusive Conduct/Bullying Prevention Mandated Training

Many states newly enacted laws mandate employers to train and educate their supervisory and non-supervisor employees in Abusive Conduct/Bullying Prevention, in addition to requiring Mandatory Sexual Harassment Prevention training and education. At Minnichka, LLC, we offer both Employee Abusive Conduct/Bullying Prevention training and Sexual Harassment Prevention Training which includes Workplace Abusive Conduct and Bullying Prevention training.

Current research conducted by The Workplace Bullying Institute indicates Workplace Bullying remains a serious problem in the United States workplace.  The Workplace Bullying Institute reported, in part, in a recent June 2021 U.S. Workplace Bullying Survey the following:

• 48.6 million Adults are Bullied at work
• 76.3 Million Workers are affected (Bullied or Witnessed) by Bullying
• 61.3% of Workplace Bullying is same gender Bullying.
• 21% of Bullying is between same rank employees
• 43% of remote workers are bullied (mostly in virtual meetings and not email)

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.

A Workplace Bully is a blustering, browbeating person who is habitually cruel, insulting, or threatening to other employees who are weaker, smaller, or in some way vulnerable.

Workplace Bullying refers to repeated, unreasonable actions of individuals (or a group) directed towards an employee (or a group of employees), which is intended to intimidate and creates a risk to the health and safety of the employee(s).

Some examples of Workplace Bullying toward an employee may include, but are not limited to, the following:

Verbal Bullying: Yelling, shouting/screaming, excessive harsh criticism, use of demeaning or inappropriate terms or epithets, put downs, insults, and/or spreading false rumors.

Non-Verbal Bullying: Sabotaging work and/or withholding resources, information and/or tools necessary to properly perform job assignments to decrease workplace success, exclusion, and/or exercising “the “silent treatment.” Examples of Abusive Conduct and Workplace Bullying, as described above, are thoroughly covered in both our Abusive Conduct/Bullying Prevention Training and in our Sexual Harassment Prevention training which includes Abusive Conduct/Bullying Prevention Training.
