Abstract:
Examines the full range of aggressive acts that occur in workplaces including homicides, assaults, sexual harassment, threats, bullying, mobbing and verbal abuse. It offers new information and evidence about the incidence and severity of workplace violence in different countries, identifies occupations and situations at particular risk, evaluates various causal explanations, and details some of the social and economic costs. It also points out that it is a highly complex issue, rooted in wider economic, employment relationship, organizational, gender and cultural factors.
