Abstract This book examines the factors that human resource, security, legal and behavioural professionals need to understand in work violence and threat situations that disrupt the working environment (cyberthreats, fear of stalking, insider threats), revealing the best ways to reduce risk and manage emergencies. It includes case studies and hypothetical examples that illustrate recommended practices and provides detailed interviewing methods that can increase the efficiency of current strategies. Helpful appendices provide sample forms for identification cards, stay-away letters, workplace behaviour improvement plans for problem employees, questions for health care providers and announcements to employees regarding security changes.
