SECTION 10—WORKPLACE SAFETY

10.1 VIOLENCE


Violence in the Workplace: The library will not tolerate violence in the workplace. Violence includes physical altercations, coercion, pushing or shoving, horseplay, intimidation, stalking, and threats of violence. Any comments about violence will be taken seriously and may result in termination. Employees are asked to not joke or make offhand remarks about violence.


Weapons: Employees are not allowed to bring weapons in the library. Weapons include firearms, knives, brass knuckles, martial arts equipment, clubs or bats, and explosives. Any employee found with an unauthorized weapon in the workplace will be subject to discipline, up to and including termination.


Domestic Violence: If an employee has been threatened or is concerned about violence or abuse by a current or former spouse, intimate partner, or other family member, the library encourages him/her to report it to the Regional Office. The library will keep this information as confidential as possible. The library will not discriminate against employees who are victims of domestic violence.


Once an employee makes a report, the Library Director will decide what steps to take for his/her safety and the safety of his/her co-workers. The Library Director may ask for copies of any restraining orders or other legal papers that have been filed against the abuser, as well as a picture of the abuser, for security purposes.
