I love the comment from “daisy” (submitted twice despite instructions saying not to). She has obviously never experienced workplace abuse.

A bill in the Nevada legislature would outlaw workplace bullying in all forms and add height and weight to the list of characteristics protected by anti-discrimination laws.
The sponsor, Assemblyman Tick Segerblom, D-Las Vegas, says the bill would make it easier for workplace bullying victims to seek redress and reduce incidents of discrimination against short and overweight people.
When it comes to bullying Segerblom says existing laws that protect people from harassment because of gender, sexual orientation or race aren’t enough.
“The reality is that bullying is a problem, a lot of people are harassed unmercifully and have no recourse,” he said. “They can’t prove it is because of their age, sex, race or gender.”
