"Workplace bullying"



Activists who've been pushing to create a new legal cause of action over "workplace bullying" are happy over an Indiana case in which a court allowed a damage claim to go forward over one such claim and admitted expert testimony about the phenomenon's nature and effects from an advocate; a jury then ordered a heart surgeon to pay $325,000 to an employee the surgeon had yelled and screamed at on the job in what the employee found to be a menacing manner. (Damon Adams, "Bully case verdict a warning to doctors", American Medical News (AMA), Apr. 18). Michael Fox of Employer's Lawyer has all the links and details. See also Overlawyered, Dec. 22.
