VIOLENCE IN THE WORKPLACE: What constitutes an act or threat of workplace violence?

A THREAT OF VIOLENCE is an indication of intent to harm a person or property. A THREAT may be made verbally, in writing , or through physical action.

An ACT OF VIOLENCE is an action taken with intent to harm a person or destroy property.

Cubic will not tolerate any violence in the workplace that is verbal, written or physical in nature to any employee, customer, vendor and/or visitor.

Cubic's emphasis is that each individual has the responsibility to report any threat or violent action immediately to their management and/or the Human Resources Department.

Cubic will initiate, if needed, and will cooperate in criminal prosecution and discipline, as appropriate, the employee(s) who engage in an act or threat of workplace violence, up to and including termination.

It is recognized that there are different kinds of violent behaviors which require different interventions. These behaviors are categorized by levels. Understanding these levels is important because violent behaviors rarely remain static. If not addressed at an early state, these behaviors escalate. In addition, having an understanding of the levels is important as the procedures or guidelines for responding to the behaviors may differ.
