Legal Briefs - Workplace Violence

The Legal Role in Keeping Your Workplace Safe

No organization wants its name on the front-page when the headline involves workplace violence. This program explores preventive measures and examines the legal obligations of managers and their organizations.

Topics include hiring policies, appropriate responses to angry outbursts, dealing with employee threats, procedures for investigating rumors and the importance of maintaining confidentiality.

This program also provides specific instructions on how to appropriately and legally investigate rumors, do background checks and employment screenings, and more.
