Most federal employees have either witnessed or been the target of bullying in the workplace yet there are few policies or guidelines directed at informing employees of their rights or methods to address the issue in the workplace. The NIH Anti-Bullying Training is designed to educate employees and managers of the prevalence of bullying in the workplace; while seeking a means to eliminate bullying within the federal government. This course will satisfy the No FEAR Act and Prevention of Sexual Harassment mandatory training requirements.
