Phoenix Business Journal: How To Deal With Bullies In The Workplace
Guest blogger Shayna Balch provided insight on bullies in the workplace for the Phoenix Business Journal.
While there are no specific laws dealing with bullying, more than 20 states have reviewed various bills aimed at banning workplace bullying, Shayna wrote.

Left unmanaged, employees may file claims related to bullying by attempting to classify the complaints as violations under existing anti-harassment laws, she explained.
