NOTE to Employers

Legal ramifications of not properly preventing or mitigating workplace violence

“To some extent, the law puts conflicting pressures on employers and others concerned with preventing or mitigating workplace violence. On the one hand, businesses are under a variety of legal obligations to safeguard their employees’ well-being and security. Occupational safety laws impose a general requirement to maintain a safe workplace, which embraces safety from violence.

For example, the ‘General Duty Clause’ of the Occupational Safety and Health Act requires employers to have a workplace that is ‘free from recognized hazards.’ Workers Compensation laws, similarly, make employers responsible for job-related injuries. Civil Rights laws require employers to protect employees against various forms of harassment, including threats or violence.

In addition, employers may face civil liability after a workplace violence incident on a number of grounds. Namely, if there was negligence in hiring or retaining a dangerous person, for example, or a failure to provide proper supervision, training or physical safety measures.”
