Do You Really Have Zero Tolerance for Workplace Violence? 

Presented by:  George Adams, Attorney at Fisher Phillips, LLP

People often think of “active shooters” when they hear the phrase “workplace violence,” but most WPV does not involve shooting.   Most employers have a policy prohibiting WPV, and some even have “zero tolerance” policies.  Unfortunately, many employers either do not have effective policies, do not understand what “zero tolerance” means, do not consistently enforce their policies, do little or nothing to support the policy, do not respond effectively to reports of WPV, or suffer from some combination of these shortcomings.   Your company probably could do more to prevent and remedy the most common types of workplace violence.  This presentation covers a wide range of learning objectives, including understanding sources of WPV and legal liability for WPV, developing and applying effective WPV policies and procedures, tips for identifying and handling violent employees, and considerations for protecting employees in special situations.
