“Bullying and Harassment in the Workplace,” 3rd edition

I’m late in mentioning publication of the latest edition of a work that I regard as the best one-volume, international, multi-author survey and analysis of workplace bullying: Bullying and Harassment in the Workplace: Theory, Research and Practice (3rd ed., 2020), edited by Ståle Valvatne Einarsen, Helge Hoel, Dieter Zapf, and Cary L.

David Yamada replied to Tiffanie Starr's discussion Gun shots on Spring Park 1:14 and 1:16am? in the group Central Jamaica Plain
"I live on Chestnut Ave -- I was up late and heard some sharp noises -- sounded more like firecrackers than gunshots, though I confess I'm more familiar with the sound of the former than the latter."

David Yamada replied to Eric's discussion Wet basement? in the group Central Jamaica Plain
"Update from my earlier post from Chestnut Ave: In all, we've had about 3.5 inches so far. Our pump was broken and we emptied by hand on Sun night (as my back can attest). We were able to borrow a pump this afternoon, and never have I been so…"

David Yamada replied to Eric's discussion Wet basement? in the group Central Jamaica Plain

New Workplace Institute

I'm a law professor at Suffolk University Law School, where I teach and write primarily in the field of employment & labor law.
