State Law Guide--Workplace Restraining Orders

June 20, 2013

Several states have proposed or enacted laws allowing employers to apply for restraining orders to prevent violence, harassment, or stalking of their employees.  The laws vary in significant ways, such as whether the employer may seek a restraining order or injunction on behalf of itself rather than on behalf of the employee and whether an employee who is the target of violence must be consulted prior to the employer’s seeking a restraining order.
