Workplace Bullying and Harassment: New Developments in International Law provides a comprehensive tour around the globe, summarizing relevant legislation and key developments in workplace bullying, harassment, sexual harassment, discrimination, violence, and stress in over 50 countries in Europe, the Asia Pacific region, the Americas region, and the Middle East and Africa. Workplace bullying, harassment, and other psychological workplace hazards are becoming increasingly acknowledged and legislated against in the modern work world. The costs of bullying, harassment, violence, discrimination, and stress at work are huge and far-reaching. Frequently under-reported and misunderstood, workplace bullying, harassment, violence, discrimination, and stress wreak havoc on the vitality and prosperity of organizations and individuals alike. Workplace laws have long dealt with physical risks, and psychological risks have begun to be treated similarly. In response to the changing workplace, many countries are regulating workplace bullying and harassment by introducing new legislation or incorporating new provisions into existing legislation to address these risks. Other countries have opted for non-regulatory instruments. Numerous European countries, Canada, Australia, and Japan all prohibit and punish workplace bullying and harassment, with other countries, including the United States of America, moving toward legislation against this abusive workplace conduct. This book brings together need-to-know information on global workplace bullying and harassment in one place, the first publication of its kind to do so. It will aid those in the fields of labor and employment, human resources management, occupational and industrial health psychology, health and safety, and workplace regulatory compliance stay abreast of laws and developments that these practitioners must be aware of, whether operating nationally or globally. Academics will also benefit. Links to laws and references are provided, enabling further research.

Meyer is an instructor at McGill University and a researcher at the Centre for the Study of Learning and Performance at Concordia University, Montreal, Quebec. “In this smart, brave book, Elizabeth Meyer speaks clearly and sensibly about differences that make a difference in children’s school lives.” —From the Foreword by Lyn Mikel Brown, Professor of Education, Colby College; author of Girlfighting "Bullying and harassment remain serious impediments to learning for far too many students. In this thoughtful book, Dr. Meyer helps readers understand why this troubling behavior occurs and persists, and offers clear and easy-to-implement action steps for both individuals and institutions that are truly committed to creating environments where everyone can learn." —Kevin Jennings, Founder, The Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) “In an accessible yet theoretically sound manner, Meyer creates a discourse that defines, identifies, and mentors us in tackling the insidious effects of bullying and harassment.” —Shirley R. Steinberg, Academic Director, The Paulo and Nita Freire International Project for Critical Pedagogy ”Meyer's work moves the bullying discussion far beyond worry, fear, and ignorance—she demands that we contextually understand both the cause and effects involved in this societal ill, then instructs us in efforts to end it.” —Joe L. Kincheloe, Canada Research Chair, McGill University "Elizabeth Meyer's important new work reflects an incisive understanding of adolescent peer dynamics. She deepens our understanding of the ways harassment limits the potential of every student. Meyer's powerful argument—that anti-gay harassment polices help all of us—is original and undeniable." —Rachel Simmons, author of Odd Girl Out: The Hidden Culture of Aggression in Girls.

An explosion of research on bullying has raised our collective awareness of the serious impacts it can have on children. No longer do we accept it as an innocuous rite of passage, just a part of growing up that we grin and bear and grow out of later. But do we grow out of it, or are there lingering effects that last well beyond the school playgrounds and lunchrooms? Is bullying traumatic and, if so, does it last into adult life? Are there life-long consequences or are the effects pretty much shed as people grow? Are some of us more resilient than others? Are there any positive or unexpected outcomes as a result of being bullied (or having been a bully) as a child? In an effort to answer these questions, Bullying Scars describes childhood bullying from the vantage point of those victims, bullies, and bystanders who are now adults; the book discusses how lives have been changed, and explores the range of reactions adults exhibit.The research gathered for this book, through interviews with over 800 people, points out that even adult decision-making is often altered by the victimization they experience as children at the hands of peers, siblings, parents, or educators. Written in an engaging and accessible style that draws heavily from the rich interview data that deLara has collected, this book will be of interest to anyone struggling with the lingering effects of being bullied. Additionally, it is highly relevant to mental health professionals -- counselors, therapists, social workers, clinical psychologists -- working with clients who are dealing with these issues.
