Anyone know a good resource for researching workplace violence laws/rules? I have noticed a lot of states passing laws that help employers control violence in the workplace (i.e., concealed weapons, domestic violence restraining orders, etc.) We operate facilities in multiple states and want to stay on top of these new laws.
Another site that has links to a number of resources--including to the one Chrissy1 mentioned--is the "Domestic Violence in the Workplace Resource Guide" from the National Center of State Courts:
The National Institute for Occupational Safety
and Health (NIOSH) is an excellent resource.
NIOSH has published Current
Intelligence Bulletin 57: Violence in the WorkplaceRisk Factors and Prevention
Strategies (DHHS [NIOSH] Publication No. 96-100). Copies can be
obtained free-of-charge from the NIOSH Publications Office while supplies last:
