Acted up five so we talked a lot about bullying on this program and something I know a lot about because Greg is always kicking me in the hallway.
-- just happens to us kids.
There's a growing push that and this kind of antagonizing behavior at work.
According to one report more than a third of Americans have been bullied at work an eight states are now considered considering -- -- and legislation.
Other states may follow suit why -- you laughing -- because.
I ignore bullies especially when -- constantly talk about their dog.
The what are what a great problem to have an America having a workplace bully means that your at work -- You have a -- That's a good thing I think a lot of he would like to have this problem the real bullies is a -- whispered coercive government he keeps trying to take money out of your pocket.
What is a bully it's somebody that wants something from you -- you know it has enough.
What's the definition of workplace -- as close -- -- schoolyard -- of these people out.
It's got its good basically is like mean girls that grow up.
Give it yet I -- it's it's and it's that kind of up personality that's a thing as on areas but I understand how this didn't really.
Cause -- stress insomnia all the things that you wouldn't wanna work but are we trying to legislate away something that is human nature.
-- -- legislate away.
Would slip away so like how can you do legislation opponent put in place Barclays the liberals like at this company that there are rules against -- right.
Which you violate.
In other -- so the yeah it does someone blows whistle so -- gets caught bullying.
The government comes bounces are gonna fund company -- I get only that's what that wasn't taking care.
-- I'm I'm guessing that's where we're headed.
You know I did you know me -- and a that it would open it up there are a lot of possible.
Lawsuits probably most of them prevalence and you are the bully though and you don't realize about.
I think I.
What did you -- that question now that I present -- obviously -- suddenly I didn't recognize who.
I think that there's that the there RPI I don't have to make -- I'm sending your ball and I'm just wondering if people not even realize.
That they aren't considered bullies at work.
Well I mean I -- that when you have a boss over top premier -- in the what do they have sexual harassment against them.
And his men trying to move up in the latter -- and how they're going them -- not getting a good job and -- would -- -- -- -- What do you think I think this is a very serious issue I think this is.
Causing a lot of people stress I think particularly what Bob reference to male female scenario or even heard -- female Nelson area.
But the reason why we need these laws is because you could have a company manual but there is no recourse for action in -- company manual companies can say.
Well we pledged to have these policies but there's no force and -- -- with -- you actually need the legislation so you can be an employee and Blake.
Break the harassment law but there's no recourse unless you break the state law shouldn't.
You're -- sexual harassment in with -- I'm not -- -- -- no I'm not I think there's two completely different.
Areas one there's a lot of harassment laws -- on the book right this is something very different from that why go.
How do you define it how do you define what -- -- are we just gonna make way because a lot of belatedly happy to be sexual but but what if I don't like some of -- have to be -- when giving us a bit.
The -- you -- have to be nice of them but I think they are talking about threatening emails mean I've heard of cases were females bully other females it's completely non sexual does not -- fall under the jurisdiction of sexual harassment.
And I honestly think this frivolous lawsuits thing I think it's a lot of propaganda coming from the chamber of.
-- the I know is one of the great -- that would of the greatest business icons on the planet.
Who recently passed away Steve Jobs.
Was not a nice person and I think I'd rather work with that not a nice person and it's -- -- great business and makes a great life for me I think I can live with all the -- zone as well now I -- get sued because you -- -- -- that's my point.
You have to be it would disagree with someone you can't worry about you'll promise to -- you about -- house.
People are taking to Wear -- at attaching it to ever exactly there's going to be peace -- -- there's gonna be school -- that every bully is now the phrase that you attach everything like addiction.
-- Internet Internet addiction became.
But the really the really bad cases there will be plenty of evidence they will be prosecuted the frivolous ones will not -- They're not going to get settled because they are from the well I I would say and last word is like at school if you see it work you should say something and try to help somebody report at this point where we need laws lawsuit by the way a lot of lawsuits to go -- -- Still frivolous.
People still get million but I -- they actually -- they spend years in court no lawyers gonna work for free to -- his butt off to try and get a settlement he sees things.
Auto companies -- Insurance companies are paying Greg that's the big -- today they sit on their money they spend more money to fight this than actual settle it because they don't want the president it's the biggest folks what's happening in our courts today.
What is not a hoax is that.
