For all our Employment Essentials readers, we recognize the celebration of the workplace this Labor Day with a link to a free workplace violence toolkit in the right margin. There have been several recent shooting incidents around the country – including one at the Empire State Building in New York City – and employers everywhere carry a heavy heart each time these occur. They an unfortunate reminder of how significant and meaningful this issue is for employers to confront and manage. Download the PDF today, because this content will be available on our blog for only a short time. Additionally, be sure you read our latest edition of Vanessa’s Views. That column – which can be accessed by clicking the bar above – also addresses workplace violence.

The Employment Essentials blog team wishes everyone an enjoyable and safe extended holiday weekend.
