Workplace Violence

Workplace violence is generally considered to be any violence or threat of violence against workers on the job or away from the work site. It has no place at Suffolk University.

Acts of concern can range from verbal threats to homicides, to disruptive behaviors such as interference with or obstruction of campus functions, to behaviors that endanger the health or safety of others, including shouting, use of profanity, waving of arms or fists, or verbal abuse.

Threatening acts can extend from physical actions short of personal contact to implicit threats on campus. 

Violent job site behaviors can include physical assaults, other acts people would believe to be potentially violent, or specific threats to inflict physical harm.
