The stimulus that triggers this type of behavior usually starts out as seemingly ambiguous, unintentional, and thoughtless acts and turns into intentional and highly coercive behavior which can cause retaliation (Bhalerao & Kumar, 2015). b. There are three levels of causes of workplace aggression “ (1) the withholding of cooperation, spreading rumors or gossip, consistent arguing, belligerency, and the use of offensive language, (2) intense arguments with supervisors, coworkers, and customers, sabotage, verbal threats and feelings of persecution, and (3) frequent displays of intense anger resulting in recurrent suicidal threats, physical fights, destruction of property, use of weapons, and the commission of murder, rape, and/or arson. (Nueman & Baron , 1988) 3. Why is workplace violence occurring? a.

They can miss work as a result of the physical symptoms or because of dread. Often, they seek counseling or psychological treatment (Zachary, 2014).” b.

Inappropriate behavior between employees/employers: (Manilla, 2008) “Violence may breed in organizations with an authoritarian style of management and where there is a division between employees and managers. Other factors that may lead to violence include:• Inconsistencies in policies and decision making • Discouragement of creativity and new ideas • Negative environmental factors • No program in place to deal with violence By contrast, workplaces in which fair and consistent treatment of employees is the rule do not generally foster violence. These organizations have policies and procedures that promote respect in the workplace” (National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, 2014) d.
