Violence in the Workplace Can Happen to You

Labor & Employment associate Gray I. Mateo-Harris and partner William J. Tarnow authored a Jan. 7, 2013 Inside Counsel article titled “Violence in the Workplace Can Happen to You: Tips for preventing and addressing workplace violence.”

Abstract: In this time of continuing economic uncertainty, and in the wake of horrific public shooting incidents, employers should develop workplace-specific policies and procedures to address, and reduce, the threat of workplace violence. With recent data showing that workplace violence impacts at least 2 million U.S. workers per year and costs U.S. businesses nearly $36 billion dollars annually, workplace violence is an issue that demands employers’ attention.
