Interpersonal Violence – An Elephant in the Office (Breakout Session 5B)
2:20 – 3:20 pm
Grand Ballroom 8B
Increasingly, interpersonal violence is occurring in the workplace. However, it remains an issue that is not often discussed and can leave employers and employees feeling caught off guard when it happens. Interpersonal violence, including domestic violence, oftentimes has a negative impact on mediation efforts. The mediator must be fully aware of, and appreciate the effects of, personal misconduct both for his or her personal safety but also as an obstacle to resolution of issues.
