If you are an employer whose employee is a victim of violence at work, or is under threat of violence at work, you can get a Workplace Protection Restraining Order.
In a Workplace Protection Restraining Order, the judge can order an abuser to:
- Not engage in any acts of violence, harassment, or stalking at the workplace;
- Stay away from the workplace; and
- Pay for damaged property as a result of the violence.
If the abuser works at the workplace, the judge has to consider how serious the past violence was before ordering the abuser to stay away from the workplace. They also must consider whether any employee is still in danger of physical or emotional harm.
