Workplace Violence: Danger on the Job
Cast & Crew
Dr. Park Dietz
Examines violent acts committed by employees against fellow employees. The most likely victims are middle-level managers and women. In a suburb of Birmingham, Alabama, three men were gunned down by another man who felt everyone was talking about him -- spreading rumors about him and his sexual orientation. The case demonstrates the dangers of mental illness left undiagnosed and untreated. Another important issue is domestic violence in the workplace, when an estranged mate comes looking for a partner or when an office romance goes terribly wrong. After experts outline steps that could make the workplace safer, the program concludes that workplace violence is one of the most preventable crimes in America.
