Vigilance about Violence: Preventing and Responding to Violence in the Workplace
Presented by Luther Wright, Jr., Attorney, Ogletree Deakins

One out of every six violent crimes occurs in the workplace. These crimes include assaults, rapes, robberies and, on rare occasions, homicides. Employees, customers, significant others and other third parties are increasingly acting out in ways that devastatingly alter lives. Now, more than ever, employers must have a comprehensive understanding of workplace violence in order to prevent and, if necessary, properly respond to violent incidents. This presentation will address the full scope of workplace violence (including domestic violence issues) and explore several helpful techniques and practices that are critical to preventing and addressing violence in the workplace.
