The state of Tennessee has expanded its Healthy Workplace Act to allow private employers to shield themselves allegations of workplace bullying. Public employers have enjoyed immunity since 2014, but now with the Governor signing the expansion April 23 to be effective immediately, private employers can receive legal immunity as well. All the employer needs to do is to adopt the state’s model anti-bullying policy. Companies that choose to maintain their own private anti-bullying policy may still qualify, but the policy must include these eight specific elements: ranging from a statement of commitment, definition of abusive conduct, employer responsibility, employee responsibility, retaliation, training for supervisors and employees, a complaint process and confidentiality. Tennessee employers should have their handbook reviewed to ensure that it contains the requisite provisions to qualify for the anti-bullying safe harbor.
