Presently, to our national shame, the United States and the State of California have no laws prohibiting status-blind harassment in the workforce. It is perfectly legal to harass an employee or co-worker until the job becomes unbearable and the workers are disabled.
Workers injured by work abuse often suffer from Post-traumatic Stress Disorder as a result of long-term psychological violence committed against them.
We are here because Bullying Breaks Hearts...
Occupational stress severely increases the risk of coronary heart disease, high blood pressure, anxiety, and post traumatic stress disorder. These are just a few of the many possible physical consequences of workplace bullying.
