The event, which runs from noon to 5 p.m., brings together legal experts for both business interests and employees, labor leaders, business consultants and others to offer advise to prevent this abusive behavior in the workplace.
"Having tried workplace bullying cases in the NJ Workers' Compensation Court before my retirement,"
Judge Sue Pai Yang, the convention's chairwoman.
"I know that severe psychiatric injuries can result from workplace bullying; especially, when others gang up on the victim or condone the actions of the perpetrators by their silence. Employers also suffer negative consequences such as reduced productivity of its employees and increased medical expenditures and turnover costs."
After retiring, Yang helped found the National Workplace Bullying Coalition (NWBC), the organization hosting this event.
