Course Overview

This short, hard-hitting video about workplace bullying prevention covers the topics needed to comply with California's new AB 2053 workplace abusive conduct law. 

California law now requires workplace abuse training to be included as part of harassment training. If you have over 50 employees, you need to make sure your organization is covered. 

Workplace bullying is not a new problem, but only just recently has the plague of bullying at work been quantified. Conservative estimates put the loss in productivity at over a billion dollars in the USA alone. A decline in employee morale, loss of productivity, employee turnover, health problems and loss in organizational reputation are just a few of the problems that the bullying causes. 

This brand-new AB2053 course covers every aspect of abusive conduct in the workplace. 

  • The legal definition of California AB2053
  • Taunting, teasing or making jokes about a co-worker.
  • Sabotaging another employee's work or copying, plagiarizing or stealing work
  • Deliberately isolating or excluding a co-worker from work-related activities.
  • Yelling, screaming, sarcasm, or other verbal abuse
  • Menacing a co-worker with threatening looks, gestures and body language.
  • Hazing or initiations
  • Unreasonably creating conflict or refusing to work with a co-worker.
  • Physically threatening, shoving, striking, or touching a co-worker
  • Gossiping or spreading rumors about co-workers...
  • The planting of false information or using private or confidential information to defame a co-worker.
  • Setting unrealistic standards and deadlines which are unachievable or that are arbitrarily changed without notice or reason.
  • Giving excessive, unreasonable and unending amounts of work to a subordinate employee.
  • Deliberately denying a co-worker the resources necessary to do their job effectively.
  • Ignoring, ridiculing or belittling a co-worker's contribution or deliberately failing to acknowledge their good work.
  • Giving unjustly negative performance appraisals or taking unwarranted disciplinary action.
  • Singling out or treating a co-worker differently
  • Holding a subordinate employee to different standards than their peers.
  • Excessive, unneeded and negative micromanagement that undermines an employee's ability to their job.

This new course will leave no doubt what behaviors are unacceptable in the workplace. Organizations that eliminate toxic behaviors like abusive contact are more likely to be financially successful than those who do not. Additionally, bully-free organizations are less likely to suffer from workplace violence incidents and less likely to have employees suffer from health issues such as stress that keep them from their jobs.
