This essay is an outgrowth of the author's participation in the Temple Political & Civil Rights Law Review’s February 2013 symposium, “Bullying: Redefining Boundaries, Responsibility, and Harm.” It builds upon the author's previous scholarship, legislative drafting and advocacy, and public education work concerning workplace bullying and the law. The piece includes a discussion of recent legal and policy developments, especially advocacy efforts in support of, and responses to, the Healthy Workplace Bill (HWB), anti-bullying legislation written by the author that serves as the template for bills introduced across the U.S. An appendix contains the latest model version of the HWB.
