Policy change to include bullying in NT


Tonawanda News — The now well-known case of Miami Dolphin’s lineman Richie Incognito, who was suspended from the team for prolonged harassment of another player, Jonathan Martin, that included racial slurs and sexual innuendo has only added fire to the conversation of bullying.   

Alexander said the previous policy created a means for employees to lodge complaints directly to the city attorney’s office, though extended the policy to department heads may have a more immediate effect. 

“They are a direct supervisor so it makes sense,” she said. “It not only covers the workplace but vendors in the city. It will start there, notifying them first but they can come to our office as well.”
