Workplace Violence

Violence in the workplace is on the rise and is something no employer can afford to ignore. Appropriate background checks on applicants can provide important guidance in selecting the right person and avoiding the potentially troublesome individual. When current employees suffer from problems, they may develop previously unseen potential for violence in the workplace. When clients are discharging employees, we offer advice to minimize the risk of an adverse reaction and a retaliatory lawsuit. Identifying these situations in advance, developing contingency plans and being able to rapidly access the necessary resources, can often prevent violence against people or damage to property. Our goal is to avoid the problem through preventive measures.
