When Employee Mental Health Poses Direct Threat to Workplace

Firm EventsEmployer Action Balanced by Employee Rights

Workplace violence in the United States was once referred to as 'going Postal.' Employee mental health issues pose a direct threat in all U.S. workplaces. For example, in 2015 Minnesota reported approximately 20 work-related assaults a week; in Kansas there were eight workplace fatalities in the private industry.

Join Stinson Leonard Street's Bob Overman on July 27 when he presents When Employee Mental Health Poses Direct Threat to Workplace – Employer Action Balanced by Employee Rights. Bob will discuss worksite and individual causes, rights and issues under the ADA Amendments Act and liability imposed by federal and state OSHA General Duty Clause. In addition, he will provide proactive measures that employment managers or small business owners can take to abate workplace violence while maintaining employee rights.

Bob is a partner in the firm's Wichita office. For more than 40 years, he has represented employers with all manner of labor issues. He works with employers contesting federal and state OSHA citations, and provides defense before the Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission and State Department of Labor proceedings. Bob also counsel's cities and colleges in employee (including faculty) negotiations, employee and student due process, compliance with FLSA, FMLA, and Title IX and provides defense to complaints brought by the U.S. Department of Education Office for Civil Rights.
