Arnstein & Lehr Chicago Partner Mark A. Spognardi and Milwaukee Associate Jesse R. Dill have co-authored an article for Inside Counsel, titled “Labor: Wisconsin shootings remind employers to address domestic violence in the workplace.” The article discusses the fatal shooting of a Milwaukee employee by her husband at the wife’s place of employment on October 21, and the necessity for employers to prepare themselves for situations involving domestic violence in the workplace. Mr. Spognardi and Mr. Dill discuss the various rights of employees who are victims of domestic violence, as well as the liability an employer may face if there is a hostile work environment. Mr. Spognardi and Mr. Dill comment that to prevent claims of discrimination for discharging an employee, the employer should implement and enforce a zero-tolerance policy that applies to acts of violence. Also employers should become knowledgeable on state and federal employment laws to navigate any employer requirements and help keep employees safe.
