Workplace violence Workplace violence is behavior that is harmful, dangerous, or threatening to employees of a company. Often, this kind of activity occurs in relation to disputes related to work, and while actions may be directed at a specific person or group of people, they pose a threat and potential harm to all employees. Companies can avoid workplace violence by encouraging respectful and fair treatment of every individual within the organization. Employers should encourage their employees to confidentially disclose questionable or dangerous behavior in a setting that is private, controlled, and safe. Avoiding workplace violence is important for companies to effectively provide an environment that is productive, safe, and reputable.
