Contact the Labor and Public Employees Committee and tell them to support CP’s Safe Work Environment Act. Our bill would remove the legal requirement for an employee to prove malice and intent by an employer, which is basically impossible. Workers should not have to prove psychological or physical harm. We also want lawmakers to create a workplace bullying advisory board, which would solicit and implement input from public employees when they recommend future legislation. CP supports an amendment which has been introduced in Nevada by State Senator Richard Segerblom. (  Municipal employees should tell committee members to expand the scope of any legislation to include city employees, in addition to state workers. City teachers have reported rampant workplace bullying at Capital Preparatory Magnet School. Call and email labor committee co-chairs Sen. Gary Holder-Winfield and Rep. Peter Tercyak and legislators representing your district. The contact info for committee members can be viewed here. Tell the lawmakers representing your district to support the Safe Work Environment Act. You can identify your State Senator and State Representative by entering your information here.
