Workplace bullying and the supervisor's responsibility to stop it
Statistics from the Waitt Institute for Violence Prevention show that one in three employees personally experiences bullying at some point in their working lives. At any given time, one out of every 10 employees is a target of workplace bullying. Nearly half of all American workers (49 percent) have been affected by workplace bullying, either being a target themselves or having witnessed abusive behavior against a co-worker.
Pay practices for adverse weather conditions
During periods of adverse weather conditions, pay practices do not change unless the president (or her designee, or the chancellor of a regional campus) declares a snow recess, which explicitly tells staff not to report for work. The president, executive vice president, provost, and chancellors of regional campuses are the only persons who can declare a snow recess.
