Workplace Violence Prevention Guidelines

 

            Usually the Human Resource Manager and/or the Crisis Management Team Coordinator are notified of an alleged workplace violence incident.  In any event, follow your division/facility/school internal policy and work with management or the Crisis Management Team to determine the appropriate course of action, i.e. need for law enforcement, investigatory placement etc. (Refer to Investigatory Placement Guidelines and Investigatory Placement Template).

 

The ER Specialist will be involved if disciplinary action is recommended after a workplace violence investigation.  An employee has no appeal rights associated with violence in the workplace reports.
