In previous activities, you learned about the types of workplace violence incidents. With growing concern over workplace violence, employers and business owners are also becoming increasingly interested in their legal obligations should a violent event occur. Loss control and safety experts warn that businesses that do not implement security measures increase their exposure to lawsuits. This week you read about doctrines, legal duties, employer liability, and limitations of sexual harassment and other workplace violations that victimize. To prepare for this week's graded activities, please review the study guide for this week. It will give you a brief summation of the material for this lesson. This is not a comprehensive list of the information, so you will still need to read the textbook.
For this week’s individual work, please respond to the following prompts:
What are the different legal precedents used by attorneys when litigating employer liability for workplace victimization?
What is the difference between negligent hiring and negligent training?
