At the Law Office of William M. Julien, P.A., in Boynton Beach, Florida, we are committed to protecting your right to be free from mistreatment at work. While we can’t make the anger and fear of retaliation go away, we do have a long track record of success representing people just like you who were facing discrimination, retaliation and violence in the workplace.
Taking Timely Action Is Critical
Workplace violence can arise in a number of different situations for a variety of reasons, many of which have nothing to do with the work environment. Nevertheless, workplace violence should never be accepted or tolerated, no matter the cause or the perpetrator.
It is also important to respond quickly to threats of violence and report suspicions immediately. Recent history has shown that many who commit public acts of violence often make threats or exhibit dangerous behavior ahead of time. Do not assume that someone’s threats are idle or that they would “never go through with it.” When someone threatens violence, take them at their word and seek protection.
If you have been injured by workplace violence, or you are worried about the threats of violence, you need to contact your company’s human resources department. If that does not stop the workplace violence or threats of violence, it is time to speak with a lawyer.
