LEGALITIES OF THREATENING AND VIOLENT BEHAVIORS IN THE WORKPLACE
Under state and federal laws governing occupational safety and health, employers are required to provide “a working environment that is safe and without risk to the safety of [their] employees.” Under the common-law doctrines of negligent hiring and negligent retention, Maryland employers may also have a duty to protect their clients and the public from employees who pose a risk of harm towards others, if the employer “knew or should have known” about the risk. In this program, we will explore the legal ramifications of violence in the workplace and discuss preventive steps.
