We’d like to recommend an upcoming complimentary webinar, “Addressing and Responding to Workplace Violence and Active Shooter Scenarios to Protect Your Employees” (Oct. 2, 2:00 p.m. EDT), by our Epstein Becker Green colleagues Kara M. Maciel, Susan Gross Sholinsky, and Christopher M. Locke, with Daniel Hess and Lynne Cripe of The KonTerra Group, an employee assistance program provider that regularly counsels employees undergoing stressful life events that can lead to violence.
Below is their description of the event:
Violence in the workplace can range from bullying and harassment to physical attacks to fatal mass shootings. Workplace violence has unfortunately become one of the most common forms of violence that people are likely to encounter during their lives.
This informative webinar will:
- Discuss ways of identifying the warning signs and recognizing behaviors that are precursors;
- Summarize strategies to assist with hiring, managing and firing employees;
- Present guidance on how to survive in the event their workplace is the scene of an active shooter scenario; and
- Review legal consequences of failing to take appropriate steps to avoid an incident.
