Phelps Dunbar is pleased to sponsor the Mississippi SHRM 20th Annual Human Resource Conference & Expo on May 12, 2015.  Jason Marsh will present a session at the Conference entitled, "Playground Rules:  Responding When Employees Bully, Tattle, and Generally Act Like Children."

This is a discussion of how courts and the EEOC are increasingly willing to equate generally bad employee behavior with a violations of the law.  Bullying is not recognized as a distinct cause of action under any federal statue; however, seventeen (17) states have considered legislation on workplace bullying, and federal courts routinely consider it as part of an overall pattern of harassment, discrimination or retaliation.  There will be a discussion of recent cases.
