Making the workplace safe from violence is a high priority for organizations today. But there is a real risk of legal liability as well. Because of workplace violence, organizations have been sued for negligent hiring and retention, constructive discharge, and failure to provide a secure environment. This new Legal Briefs module will help insure your managers know their legal obligation and the actions they can take to keep your workplace safe and out of court. This program also provides specific instructions on how to appropriately and legally investigate rumors, do background checks and employment screenings, and more.
