Fulton County Commissioners approve anti-bullying policy

Posted: Updated:

Fulton County commissioners approved a resolution at its Wednesday meeting that establishes an anti-bullying policy for the Fulton County workforce.

The legislation, sponsored by District 7 Commissioner William "Bill" Edwards, calls attention to the issue of bullying in the workplace.  

Fulton County has an existing workplace violence policy. 

The new legislation supplements that existing policy with the goal of preventing verbal bullying or other actions.

The policy defines bullying as: Verbal abuse, conduct which is threatening, humiliating or intimidating; work interference or sabotage which prevents work from being completed or performed; or exploitation of a known psychological or physical vulnerability.
