NOTHING ON THIS SITE IS OR SHOULD BE CONSTRUED AS LEGAL ADVICE!
This site is meant only to provide general information to employers who are concerned about providing their employees with a healthy bully-free management environment, and to workers who are experiencing the trauma of workplace abuse.
The information contained here is based upon sources believed to be accurate and reliable, and diligent effort was made to insure the accuracy of these materials. However, the author assumes no responsibility for a reader’s reliance on this information. The law constantly changes and legal references on this site may be out of date or rendered inaccurate as a result of subsequent legal developments. Furthermore, I cannot verify the accuracy of information, articles or advice from other sources. And my opinions are just that.
This is an area of law that is still in the fetal stage. And even when the law is settled and clearly defined, there are too many variables to predict with certainty what will happen in the American legal system (i.e. do you have have counsel, evidence, what is the judge’s background, what state do you live in, etc.).
Most importantly, every case of workplace abuse is different. Legal advice is possible only after consulting with a client, becoming acquainted with the specific facts of the case, researching applicable laws, and analyzing how those laws apply to the facts. Nothing contained on this web site or communicated through it will create an attorney-client relationship.
