How to Manage Increasingly Deadly Workplace Violence


Mitigating Risks and Minimizing Liability for Employers, Supervisors and HR Professionals in Workplace Violence Litigation.

According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), at least 2,000,000 Americans are victimized by workplace violence each year with “many cases” going unreported. Section V of the federal OSH Act of 1970 requires employers to provide a place of employment which is “free from recognized hazards” including workplace violence. Workplace violence is the fourth-leading cause of death in the American workplace and the leading cause of death of women at work.

Employees who have been victimized by workplace violence may initiate litigation against their employers, supervisors and human resources professionals, individually, for negligent hiring and negligent supervision amongst other vicarious liability and negligence causes of action. The average cost of workplace violence litigation that settles is $500,000 while the average cost of a lawsuit that reaches a jury is $3,000,000.

This session by expert speaker Kathleen M. Bonczyk, Esq. will relate workable strategies that will mitigate the risk and minimize potential liability for employers, individual supervisors and human resources professionals when named as defendants in workplace violence litigation. Kathleen will provide cutting-edge solutions to mitigate the risk of workplace violence and prevent lawsuits from arising in your organization.
