What are the governing regulations?
Workplace violence and bullying is not specifically regulated by OSHA standards, instead falling under the OSH Act general duty clause. It provides that all employers provide a workplace "free from recognized hazards that are causing or likely to cause death or serious physical harm" to their employees. Workplace violence is a recognized hazard, and employers must take steps to minimize the risks of violence against their employees.

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) enforces federal laws that make it illegal to discriminate against a job applicant or employee. In addition to protected statuses such as age, race, and sex, the EEOC also provides protection for employees who have complained or filed charges of discrimination or who have participated in an employment discrimination investigation or lawsuit. Severe or pervasive workplace bully can lead to a hostile work environment, which is a violation of federal anti-discrimination laws.

Who must take this training?
Because violence and bullying can occur at any workplace, all employers should make it a priority to provide safety training for their employees. Workplace harassment training highlights the conflict resolution tools needed to reduce the risk of violent or bullying behavior.

Case Study: A government employee contacted an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) member for advice on dealing with her senior coworker who often shouted and made demeaning remarks to female employees. For example, when female employees would ask him for advice on a topic in his area of expertise, he would tell them to use their common sense. When they completed their work on their own, he would speak loudly about how they had done the work the wrong way. When the employee spoke with her supervisor, she was told not to make a mountain out of a molehill.

The EAP counselor was able to help the employee recognize that allowing herself to be brushed off and ignoring the problem was worsening the situation. The counselor helped her explore skills to address the situation, including using firm and friendly "I statements" such as, "I don't like shouting. Please lower your voice." After using these new skills, the senior coworker's behavior improved when interacting with that female employee but not when interacting with the others.

When all of the female employees in the office met with the EAP counselor to practice assertiveness skills, the situation improved. However, it took a meeting between the EAP counselor and the supervisor, a written reprimand, a short suspension, and several counseling sessions before the senior coworker ceased his disruptive behavior.
