Synopsis By: - Proceeding Author: Carlos R. Perez

Mr. Perez describes a common situation of bullying by a supervisor, and the limited efficacy of litigation, arbitration, and mediation in attempting to address the problem. Mr. Perez suggests that, where there is a cba, due process can be the antidote to bullying because the employer has the burden of proving employee misconduct. Yet requiring an employee to endure that process can, in itself, be bullying.
