COMBATING WORKPLACE VIOLENCE
Tuition: $125.00 per person - John Jay Alumni receive a 10% discount. Group discounts are also available.

This seminar is a comprehensive presentation of 'Combating Workplace Violence-Guidelines for Employers and Law Enforcement.' These guidelines are the result of a commitment by the International Association of Chiefs of Police with the research and financial support of the Defense Personnel Security Research Center and Bureau of Justice Assistance.

Bill #A03734 NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY (other States are considering similar legislation)

Proposed legislation that would require employers (50 plus employees) to develop and implement programs to prevent WORKPLACE VIOLENCE

Wording of the Bill: 'Workplace violence presents a serious occupational safety hazard for workers, but many EMPLOYERS and workers may be unaware of the risk. Moreover, the hazard of workplace violence is NOT currently addressed by any specific federal or state regulation.

Proposed amendment would create new section 200-A of the Labor Law.

It would require said employers to develop and implement a WRITTEN WORKPLACE VIOLENCE PREVENTION PROGRAM including a reporting system of incidents of aggressive behavior.

This SEMINAR will make employers AWARE of and PROMOTE a program pursuant to the guidelines of the International Association of Chiefs of Police for dealing with workplace violence. These guidelines dovetail with the proposed legislation. Successful application of these guidelines may well serve to attenuate civil liability in future incidents of workplace violence.
