Description:

“Should we call the police, or call OSHA?” That’s a question you should take a serious look at when it comes to addressing violence in the workplace.

Acts of workplace violence are uniquely challenging because the threat is often from outside the workplace, including non-employee third parties. Nevertheless, workplace violence has become a hot button enforcement issue for OSHA, citing employers under the OSH Act’s “catch-all” general duty clause (GDC) for employers who do not do enough to protect their employees from violent acts.

Beyond OSHA, situations involving workplace violence can also spark retribution from other employment laws. For example, if violent acts or threats occur because of symptoms of an employee’s disability, the handling of discipline and termination gets tricky under the ADA. Likewise, HR issues related background checks and negligent hiring could also contribute to civil liability.

To avoid costly fines and legal issues, it’s vital for employers to develop and implement an effective workplace violence prevention program and engage in thoughtful hiring practices.

Join us when Attorneys Eric J. Conn, a featured presenter at the Workplace Violence Prevention Symposium 2017, and Lindsay A. DiSalvo, both of the Washington, D.C.-based OSHA and Employment law firm Conn Maciel Carey LLP, will explain your legal obligations to address workplace violence and the implications if you fail to do so. They will provide you with the knowledge and tools needed to develop a workplace violence prevention program that will satisfy your company’s requirements under OSHA’s general duty clause.

You’ll learn:

  • OSHA’s enforcement philosophy about workplace violence and enforcement under the general duty clause
  • Reference checking, negligent hiring and supervision obligations to avoid liability to employees or third parties injured from workplace violence
  • Recommendations for a compliant workplace violence prevention policy and employee training
  • The industries that are the most susceptible to OSHA General Duty
  • Clause workplace violence violations, and industry-specific guidance for meeting OSHA’s expectations
