    Significant contribution to the field, January 22, 2013

    Paula Parnagian (Boston, MA USA) –

    This review is from: Bullying, Violence, Harassment, Discrimination and Stress: Emerging Workplace Health and Safety Issues (Paperback)

    In this comprehensive and timely resource, Ellen Cobb has made a significant contribution to the field of worker health and safety. Still vastly under-reported and misunderstood, workplace bullying, violence, harassment, discrimination and stress continue to wreak havoc on the vitality and prosperity of organizations and individuals alike.

    Some of the compelling data that Cobb cites in this international reiew of existing laws and recent developments include:

    *Workplace stress and bullying and harassment constitute 2 of the top 3 concerns of British workers

    *Findings from 2010, from the largest workplace health and safety survey in Europe, indicate that 4 out of 5 European managers express concern about work-related stress

    *In the US alone, $70 billion are lost each year because of workplace violence

    *In June of 2012, the Australian state of Victoria passed legislation making serious bullying a crime punishable by up to 10 years in jail, after the tragic suicide of a young woman who had endured ongoing and serious workplace bullying.

    As markets shift, technological advances change the nature of how work gets done, and businesses scramble to figure out how to do more with less, the need to find solutions to these problems becomes all the more pressing. Cobb’s work is an invaluable resource for those working in this field and provides extensive research and updated references on all existing legislation and recent developments in more than 50 countries around the world.

    There is clearly a growing momentum towards a tipping point, both in the US and abroad. Business, legal, compliance, and HR leaders would be wise to obtain a copy of this book and take measures now to get ahead of these issues. Indeed, the very survival of their organizations may depend on it.

    Immensely helpful, December 6, 2012

    This book is an invaluable resource to anyone who wishes to understand and/or advance current approaches to workplace bullying and related threats to employee well-being. Prior to Cobb’s work, researchers and activists were hard-pressed to develop any kind of comprehensive overview of health and safety issues related to bullying, violence, harassment, discrimination and stress around the world, and as a result, we were relegated to working without a deeper understanding of international progress (and challenges) thus far. Thank you, Ellen Cobb, for your landmark work.
