Violence in the Workplace

The recent tragedy at Albertson's in Irvine was yet another reminder of the growing concern of violence in the workplace. Most people think of violence as a physical assault, often ending tragically. However, workplace violence is a much broader problem. It is any act in which a person is abused, threatened, intimidated or assaulted in his or her employment.

Confronting workplace violence is a serious task. In addition to the basic moral and human desire to keep workers safe from harm, increasing legal responsibilities make preventing workplace violence a top priority. California requires businesses to have a workplace injury prevention plan. Yet doing so fairly, legally, and comprehensively is not easy.
