Is Minnesota prepared for legal assault on bullying bosses?
- By KATHERINE KERSTEN, Minneapolis Star Tribune, MN
Your boss has some valid points, but was being a jerk when he made them. Should you band together and suggest that he tone it down, ask the human resources department to intervene, or bite your lip and redouble your sales efforts?
There may soon be another option. How about bringing an anti-bullying lawsuit and threatening to take every penny your employer's got?
Never heard of such lawsuits? Advocates are pushing to create sue-the-jerk legal actions across the country, according to the cover story in this month's Bench & Bar, the Minnesota State Bar Association's publication.
