Violence in the Workplace

All University community members share the responsibility to maintain a climate of behavior which does not foster acts of violence and aggression. Acts of violence and aggression include verbal or physical actions that are intended to create fear or apprehension of bodily harm or threaten the safety of others in our workplace. This could include actions by any member of the University community as well as incidents in personal lives that could affect the workplace. Report any acts of violence to your supervisor and/or department head; Staff HR Services at (734) 763-2387; Health System HR Services at (734) 647-2385; or the Faculty and Staff Assistance Program (FASAP) at (734) 936-8660. In the case of an emergency, contact the Department of Public Safety at 911 or (734) 763-1131. Incidents of violence in the workplace are considered to be serious misconduct and will not be tolerated.
