Workplace Violence: Share Your Personal Story
When you started your career, you probably didn’t imagine you would have to deal with assaults at work, coming from patients, clients, family members or visitors. You may have your own stories to tell about assaults at work. Workplace violence has been considered “part of the job” for far too long and it must end. Prevention is possible.
Help us put faces to these stories by sharing your story with us now.
The AFT has been leading the fight to protect healthcare and social service workers from violence at work. U.S. Rep. Joe Courtney (D-Conn.) and Senator Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis.) have reintroduced the Workplace Violence Prevention for Health Care and Social Service Workers Act, H.R. 2664/S. 1176.
It is critical to show the nation just how common workplace violence is and how much it impacts your ability to care for patients while living a full and meaningful life. If you have experienced or witnessed workplace violence, please share your story now.
