How Bullies Getting Sued Affects You
Feeling frustrated? Think again before creating school, workplace gossip; it could cost you.

Last week in New Jersey, a judge upheld the decision that schools, students and parents accused of bullying can be named in lawsuits. In defense, the school involved in this particular case stated that they had notified everyone of the alleged bullying that was occurring, but the fact that there had been little to no resolution, still placed the particular school, parents and alleged bullies at fault.

What does that mean for you? Well, it could very well mean that this new decision coming out of New Jersey could serve as an example for other states to follow. In addition, this determination could easily spread to other areas of life, including work place harassment, organization conflicts and more. That means there is a higher chance of you getting sued if you have been or are involved in a conflict or even if you simply own a business or work at a school where bullying and harassment takes place.

Bringing disagreeing parties to the table before conflict gets so out of hand that litigation is considered, could prevent a lot of hassle, money and time in the long run.

Brāv provides this middle ground — an effective way to reduce the likelihood of any conflict increasing through the skill of a Brāv One intermediary who listens to each side of the argument. The best part is that all of this occurs within the comfort and privacy of your home or elsewhere.

Even more, implementing Brāv as a plan that your entire school, place of work or organization as a whole uses, allows for stronger accountability as everyone now has an opportunity to be heard, while adding the ability to create consequences unique to each school, work or organization if an individual is not cooperative.

The key is communicating to everyone involved and finding a solution in which everyone can live with. Let’s get brāv enough to reach a solution amongst our peers before suing is even considered an option.
