We tend to think of workers’ compensation cases as accidents, But what about workman’s compensation and violence?
There are four generally recognized areas of workplace violence, according to HRDailyAdvisor.blr.com. Criminal intent is when the perpetrator isn’t necessarily connected with the company or employees, but is violent and commits a crime. In some situations, a customer or client is the perpetrator. The third type is when an employee attacks another at work; and lastly, when the perpetrator has a relationship with an employee, but not the business.
Reports show that professions like law enforcement and healthcare have higher numbers of workplace violence.
