Freedom from Workplace Bullies Week, during the third week of October, is a national event sponsored by the Workplace Bullying Institute, California Healthy Workplace Advocates and 35 other states.

Freedom Week is the chance to break through the shame and silence surrounding workplace bullying and to increase awareness about this silent epidemic.

Workplace bullying is defined as repeated, health-harming mistreatment which interferes with the normal flow of work. According to the latest scientific WBI-Zogby national survey, 35 percent of adult Americans (that is 53.5 million workers) experience bullying at work firsthand.

Damages include harm to employee health and job loss. Employers suffer lost productivity, low morale, and heavy costs to their bottom line.

In 2012, 55 California cities and counties proclaimed the third week of October as “Freedom from Workplace Bullies Week.” The primary reason bullying occurs so frequently in workplaces is that bullying is not yet illegal, yet bullying is four times more common than sexual harassment or racial discrimination on the job.

For more information contact California Healthy Workplace Advocates at bullyfreeworkplace.org or the Workplace Bullying Institute at workplacebullying.org.
