Eventually, I hope the anti bullying laws that cover adults include all peoples for all reasons. There is no excuse for ANYONE TO BULLY! That being said, my case comes under one of the protected areas considering the circumstances. Keep reading;
“Have you been suffering from workplace bullying and harassment in California? If so, this behavior could be violating California Labor Law.
And while bullying itself is not unlawful, workplace harassment due to your sex, national origin, disability, age, race, religion and a variety of other factors is illegal. “
Considering the Cult Right bullies include people with political positions that vary widely from mine, AND the people doing this adhere to certain common idealogies, I do believe that California Labor laws are being broken.
Your …..coworker tampers with your personal belongings;
Your …….. coworker stalks, spies on, or pesters you;
Your ……….coworker threatens you with unwarranted ………. emotional, or psychological abuse;
Your……. coworker designs an underhanded campaign to oust you from your job;
Personal belongings: I have purchased MANY of the items that I have in my classroom. Check this one off.
Stalks, spies on, or pesters you: Oh spying I have no doubt, phones to contact one another comes under stalking. I KNOW pesters for sure.
Emotional or psychological abuse. Isn’t that the whole intent of mobbing? This also comes under stalking laws.
Underhanded campaign to oust you from your job. Oh, whoever removed the papers for a meeting AND/OR communicated that these papers were in my possession would be involved, right? Tampering with student materials to throw me off. Underhanded, but I am not the only one affected. Actually, I am very good at punting.
Again – these rights should apply to EVERYONE. However, considering the group and coworkers who are discsriminating against me believe in a particular “political” philosophy that is completely different from mine, I believe that I am being kept from enjoying my civil rights. Interesting – One KKK guy could not be arrested and tried for murder, but was later arrested and tried for impeding the civil rights of the man he killed. Gotcha.
“Civil rights include the ensuring of peoples’ physical and mental integrity, life, and safety; protection from discrimination on grounds such as race, gender, national origin, colour, age, political affiliation, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, and disability; and individual rights such as privacy and the freedoms of thought, speech, religion, press, assembly, and movement.”
Hmmmm. Does the fact that I am a PERSON with bipolar disorder add to the degree of discrimination?

The author disagrees with having to sign this oath. We are public employees if we work under the umbrella of a public school district. As far as I know, ALL public employees are required to sign oaths as are military personel. I assume that includes reservists.
Well, so all employees working for a district have taken an oath to uphold the Constitation of the United States of America as have: postal workers, fire fighters, etc. I am wondering how someone who believes that the white race is superior to others can teacher students who are not white. Some of these stalkers believe that you are okay as long as you are Christian. Again, I am wondering how someone who believes that Christians (as per the Kult right’s definition) is able to teach students who are not ultra Christian. Oh, I think that teachers can effectively teach without their own views coming into play………….but such extreme views? One teacher let his guard down for just a second. Ugly, ugly. The science guy. I believe we were talking about undocumented people. I don’t care a twit and even if I did, I cannot let my views get in my way.
A student came up to me during recess a long time ago. He was almost in tears. He was troubled because he didn’t believe the science that we were studying (early man, etc.). I just said, “Oh honey (it’s me), I don’t care if you believe this, you just need to know the information.” Relief washed over his face. Of course. A big part of my job is accepting each child for who s/he is.
