October 22, 2009 at 11:32 am | Posted in Coming Up | 7 Comments

You don’t have to look back too far to feel the impact of domestic violence in our community. In this economy, tensions are running higher than in years past, both at home and in the workplace. Workplace violence is on the rise, and more than just hurting the victims and other employees, this kind of violence can hurt a company’s bottom line as well. We’ll take a look at workplace violence in North Carolina, some of the trends and what employers are doing to protect their employees and their companies.
