Workplace Restraining Order
In some states, an employee who is the victim of violence or threats of violence in the workplace may be eligible for protective orders. If a workplace violence restraining order is an available option in your state, you should know that in some cases the restraining order must be filed y the employer on behalf of the employee. Additionally, the duration of the restraining order may last a few months to several years, depending on your state’s laws and regulations.
If you do not qualify for a Workplace Violence restraining order, you may still qualify for a domestic violence restraining order, a civil harassment restraining order, or a workplace violence restraining order.
