Best & Flanagan


Employment & Labor: Workplace Violence

The Best & Flanagan Employment & Labor team assists in creating policies for handling staff discipline and separations and for providing support to professionals under stress.

We advise clients through difficult employee decisions and transitions, from disciplining individuals who violate zero tolerance violence policies to assisting managers and workers involved in employment separations. We pursue a philosophy of strong human resources management that emphasizes fairness, direct feedback and reliable support for employees in need.

We provide thoughtful training programs, sometimes in partnership with other professionals, on how to handle immediate threats as effectively as possible. We also advise on protective measures that may be used in the event of a threat of violence, including involving local authorities in providing protection for events or significant employment transitions, or in obtaining court orders to protect our clients’ personnel and property.
