Drs. Gary & Ruth Namie

California Healthy Workplace Advocates was founded in 2004 at the request of  Dr. Gary Namie, founder of the Workplace Bullying Institute, during a presentation he gave on  Workplace Bullying in Sacramento, CA. He  asked that California form a grass roots movement to get a law  passed to correct and prevent workplace bullying. Attendees gathered, shared contact information, and began monthly meetings in Sacramento.  The members work closely with Drs. Gary and Ruth  Namie and the Workplace Bullying Institute.

 In 2006, a website was developed for others to find and join the group. The group continues to grow every  month.  There are Healthy Workplace Advocates all over the United States now.  California is proud to be  a leader in this movement and hope our State passes the Healthy Workplace Act SOON!

 2018 was the ninth year California joins Drs. Namie and the other States nationally in declaring the third week  in October as Freedom from Workplace Bullying Week. The Proclamations on this website go toward  accomplishing the first part of our mission, to raise public awareness about this critical issue.  By posting the  Proclamations and giving the originals to legislators, our intention is to show legislators how many cities and  counties in our State agree that workplace bullying is unacceptable. 

 Status blind workplace bullying should be against the law. Please Help us pass The Healthy Workplace Act  so all workers, owners, directors, managers, & employees, can be protected by correcting and preventing  workplace bullying. We need to protect future generations in the workforce, too!
