When Domestic Violence Affects the Workplace � 1 Hour
Vernon Chamber of Commerce Members and Guests, please join us at this informative seminar on �Why Domestic Violence Spills into the Workplace� and �The Top 10 Threats Faced by Employers in 2008�.
This seminar will open your eyes to the true risks faced by employers and victim employees. Aside from the danger of violence from current employees, former employees, and other factors, such as robbery, another growing threat is domestic violence. In the case of domestic violence, what often starts at home is completed at work. Spousal assault occurring in the workplace is more common than employers realize. For employees being stalked, the workplace is the one location where the victim is usually found. According to the National Crime Victimization Survey, about 2 million assaults and threats of violence against employees occur annually in the workplace. The most common type of workplace crime is assault, with an average of 1.5 million a year!
The Top 10 Threats Faced By Employers in 2008 � 1 Hour
No employer is immune. Whether you are a sole proprietor, a small business or large corporation, your company could be at risk. Insiders are not just employees. Today they can include contractors, business partners, auditors, even alumnus. The underlying complexities of insider threats, including the very definition of insider, are poorly understood.
This seminar will have a significant effect, not only on how employers view insider risk, but on how organizations can effectively respond to potential threats and actual behaviors. Some of the issues covered will include: Computer Security, Substance Abuse, Pre-Employment Background Screening, Performing Security Surveys, Employee Training, Hostile Terminations, Workers� Compensation Fraud, Due Diligence Investigations and Theft.
