If you’ve ever been subjected to verbal abuse or consistently unfair treatment at the hands of a superior there may be good news on the horizon. In a growing movement, a majority of states now have some laws protecting against workplace bullying. Though North Carolina has not yet adopted such a law, the geographic trend could be leaning in that direction, with the legislation creeping from New England into nearby states like West Virginia and Tennessee. These laws seek to prevent employees from suffering the kinds of damaging and uncivilized office behavior that has long been considered perfectly legal for people in positions of power.
