Program Description:

Over the last 20 years, we have become almost accustomed to seeing headlines about devastating incidents of workplace and campus violence. Employers, however, should be more resolved than ever to prevent a "troubled" employee from escalating into a "troubling," dangerous individual. Not only are there new legal obligations to create and maintain a safe workplace, but there are more operational tools than ever before available to the proactive employer to do so in a thoughtful and comprehensive manner. This webinar features legal experts from around the country who have served on the front lines of this critical employment issue.  They will provide practical information and guidance on such key topics as:

  • ANSI standards – the new “touchstone” 
  • Creating the infrastructure for a workplace violence prevention team
  • Critical issues prevention team members need to know, including:
    • Warning signs/risk factors
    • Domestic violence
    • Guns in the workplace
    • Criminal background checks/EEOC guidelines
    • The intersection of ADAAA with workplace violence prevention
