Corporate bullying should be a crime

I was recently the victim of corporate bullying because I refused to condone intentional breaches of law, which, apart from being wrong, could have put me at personal risk of prosecution and undermined my professional status.

Despite calling in the Unions to help me fight the bullies there seemed to be little that could be done legally to either prevent them from bullying me or stop them from ending my employment because I complained about it.

This is an appalling state of affairs which resulted in me losing my job and pension.

There ought to be some kind of legal action that can be taken by workers against corporate bullying.

Why is this idea important?

Combine legislation and keep it wholly up to date

Example

Environmental legislation has appeared in dribs and drabs over many years. We end up with a system where there are various regulations some duplicating others and some causing overlaps, or conflicts.

Environmental legislation should all sit under one overarching Act rather like HASAWA.

Having said that, all legislation is very annoying. You cannot go to a regulation (unless it is the first issue) and get the whole set of requirements. You get the latest amendment which changes a word here, deletes a sentence there, adds a clause or two, and changes some but not all responsibilities, applicability, or definitions. 

To say the very least it is EXTREMELY unhelpful. You have to get the latest amendment, find the first issue, then the first amendment, second, third etc etc and try to piece together what the law actually requires you to do today.

Whilst it is certainly keeping a lot of legal beagles in a job, it doesn't help the people trying to make sure the law is complied with.

Fix this problem and it will really make a huge difference – please, please, please.
