            Occupational violence is on the rise in Australia. It takes many forms, ranging from threats and verbal abuse to serious physical assault. Violence at work has significant legal, economic, and emotional consequences for both employers and individuals. Failure to prevent workplace violence can (and has) resulted in significant damage claims awarded against employers.

            Join Damien and Matthew as they examine how to effectively manage the risk of violence in your workplace and the principles applied in determining liability at common law for workplace assaults.
            We hope you can join us.
