Corporate Self Defence
Does your staff know how to respond to prevent harassment & bullying, a serious assault, a rape or possibly save their own life if attacked? If not, why not?.
Employers have a ‘duty of care’ for all their workers. If the mutual trust and confidence between employer and employee is broken – for example, through harassment and violence at work – then an employee can resign and claim ‘constructive dismissal’ on the grounds of breach of contract. Employers are usually responsible in law for the acts of their workers. Workers who are assaulted, threatened or abused at work also have legal remedies available to them under civil law. These can result in damages against the employer or individuals, the most common remedy for which is a personal injury claim.
