Workplace Anti-Bullying Bill Considered By Wisconsin Legislature, Part I

Importantly, a civil claim would be filed in a Wisconsin county court, as opposed to federal court or an administrative agency like the Wisconsin Equal Rights Division or EEOC (i.e. agencies that handle discrimination complaints). This post summarizes the bill, its legal requirements, its potential benefits for WI employees, and potential liabilities for employers.
