The much “ballyhooed” controversy surrounding the Miami Dolphins’ offensive tackle Jonathan Martin’s departure following the allegedly incessant bullying and harassment by all-pro lineman Richie Incognito has reignited the discussion over the need for legislation to prevent bullying in the workplace. According to Martin, Incognito sent belittling, threatening and offensive text messages; left voicemail messages meant to intimidate and berate; and generally left Martin feeling threatened and depressed. Martin claimed that he could no longer withstand the treatment, and chose to leave the Dolphins on October 28.
