NYSDOL Issues Proposed Workplace Violence Regulations For Public Employers

On November 27, 2008, the New York State Department of Labor issued proposed regulations to implement the Workplace Violence Prevention Law of 2006, codified as New York Labor Section 27-b. A copy of the proposed regulations can be found here. While these are proposed regulations, I suspect that the regulations in final form will be similar if not idential. Accordingly, public employers should begin preparing their Workplace Violence Policy Statements, Risk Evaluation and Determinations, and Prevention Programs to ensure timely compliance.
