All workers deserve a work place that is free from harassment and violence. However, such incidents can happen, and may go unreported or unsupported. Many employees and employers who have experienced or witnessed occurrences of work place harassment and violence are uncertain of next steps, fear reprisal, or are unsure if raising the issue or filing a complaint is warranted.
