Violence in the Workplace
Policy and Procedures Manual
for Human Resource Professionals

June 2007

Description

The purpose of this Violence in the Workplace Policy and Procedures Manual is to provide direction to Human Resource (HR) personnel in preventing and/or responding to incidents of workplace violence or a perceived threat of violence in the workplace. Every agency in the executive branch and all elected state offices are expected to comply with these procedures.

The goal of the policy and manual is twofold:

1. To reduce the probability that employees will engage in verbal threats or physical actions that create a security hazard for others in the workplace, and

2. To ensure that any complaint of violence or the threat of violence is taken seriously and is thoroughly and promptly investigated.

This manual outlines the major components of this effort: policy, procedures, workplace security assessment, control and prevention, training and other support services. It is being issued statewide to ensure that matters are handled in a consistent fashion across agencies. Review this document, including the items in the appendices and implement this manual as is or modify your current policies and procedures so that they are in compliance with this manual. In those agencies where there may be a potential conflict with the contents of this document, interpretations will be assessed on a case-by-case basis. Questions regarding employment issues should be addressed to the Office of Labor Relations (OLR) at the Office of Policy and Management (OPM).
