No business is safe from the imminent threat of workplace violence or bullying, and employers can be held liable if their employees fall victim to office violence, internal bullying, or violence through confrontations with customers or people outside of the business. Employers need to prepare their workplaces and employees against the real possibility of hostile or dangerous situations. The first step to safeguarding a business is for employers to take preventive measures, minimize employer liability, and take action against threats to their work space and staff.
In the Workplace Violence and Bullying webinar, you can learn how to spot the signs of potentially violent workers, how to address workplace bullying and how to implement and maintain a healthy workplace.
