Togethering will bring together experts in cultural, social, and administrative change to enable housing providers, their agents, and tenants to work together to create bully-free residential communities. Not only is there a potential legal liability if bullying takes place in a property, but there are significant benefits for keeping a community bully-free. See http://togethering.com/business


The business leadership case for action

Preventing and remedying harassment, a form of bullying, may not seem like the legal responsibility of the housing provider—but it is, according to state and federal authorities. On October 21, 2015, HUD proposed a rule that would formalise and define harassment in order to protect important rights of persons covered by the Fair Housing Act in their home. This rule would impose clear responsibility on the housing provider for any acts of harassment.
