There Are Legal Responses To Bullying
National attention on bullying and cyberbullying is increasing. And, it’s happening in our community every day. Be aware that bullying comes in many forms. Bullying in school can negatively impact the ability of children to learn. Schools are encouraged to develop anti-bullying policies to help build a safe school environment. Youth sports groups should train coaches to reinforce the message that bullying is unacceptable.
It’s not just about kids and teens. Workplace bullying happens every day. It can cause high staff turnover rates and stress-related absences. There are laws to protect employees. Make sure you know your rights.
Our community veterans experience bullying too. It’s important to support those who have served and are still serving.
There is no federal law against bullying, but you have a right to feel safe and to be treated fairly.
At Luxenberg Garbett Kelly & George, P.C., we are stepping up to address bullying. Through awareness and doing our part to treat others fairly, we can have a positive impact on bullying. Let’s make our community a better place and stop bullying today.
