Ways To Enforce Your Legal Rights
Your employer has a duty to keep the workplace safe. If you were injured or lost a loved one due to workplace violence, you have important rights. You could be entitled to benefits such as wage replacement and medical costs through workers’ compensation. You may even have a personal injury claim based on considerations such as:
- Did your employer have a zero-tolerance policy for intimidation, harassment or threats in the workplace?
- Was your employer aware of warning signs?
- Did your employer offer training on how to identify and handle potentially violent situations?
- Did your employer conduct sufficient background checks before hiring?
- Did your employer fail to take steps to improve an unsafe workplace?
An attorney can evaluate your options based on what happened.
