Stan Carroll presented Workplace Violence – What is it? as part of Smith Anderson’s 21st Annual Employment Law Update on November 6 and November 13. The intersection of business, employment and the law is ever-changing, and can be difficult to navigate. Smith Anderson‘s 21st annual Employment Law Update (ELU) provided an in-depth look at workplace trends and legal developments with the goal of guiding employers through the challenges of the modern-day work environment. The ELU addressed the increasingly complex issues that affect workforces including:
- Diversity, Inclusion and Employee Engagement
- EEOC Enforcement Trends and Plans
- Avoiding Common Mistakes under the FLSA and NC Wage and Hour Act
- North Carolina Unemployment Insurance Reform
- Workplace Violence
- Gender-Based Discrimination in Compensation Claims
- DOMA and Your Benefit Plans
- The OFCCP’s Final Rules for VEVRAA and Section 503
- OSHA 2014 and Beyond
According to the International Labour Organization, incidents of violence “occurring at workplaces around the globe suggest that this issue is truly one that transcends the boundaries of a particular country, work setting or occupational group.” What is workplace violence? Who is responsible? What are some identifying key behaviors? What are the warning signs of aggressive behavior? How does your organization manage aggressive behavior in the workplace? Understanding workplace violence is critical when creating a program that allows organizations – both clients and attorneys – to address problems before they escalate.
