Mitigating Risk During of Hostile Terminations: Your Safety is Our Priority

Over the past three decades, CIS has assisted numerous employers in safely managing risks of workplace violence during hostile termination situations. Our offerings are particularly tailored for corporations seeking assistance in workplace violence assessments, threat management services, policy and procedure development, hiring practices, and guidance on handling hostile terminations.

With over thirty years of experience, our workplace violence prevention consultants bring unparalleled expertise and strategic insight to the table. Our practitioners hold numerous certifications, including the Workplace Assessment of Violence Risk (WAVR-21) instrument, marking us as trusted industry leaders in threat assessment and management.

The Workplace Assessment of Violence Risk (WAVR-21) is an empirically based and professionally endorsed guide designed to evaluate the risk of violence within a working environment. Developed by leading experts in threat assessment, the WAVR-21 is a comprehensive approach to workplace violence, incorporating 21 dynamic and static factors relevant to this issue.

Hostile Terminations: Workplace Violence Risk Assessment and Management

1. Workplace Violence Assessment

The first step of the hostile termination process is conducting a preliminary workplace violence assessment to understand the current situation and identify whether a full threat assessment is warranted.  If the initial assessment suggests a threat is viable, our practitioners conduct a thorough workplace violence assessment based on the facts of the case to identify potential risk factors. Using the WAVR-21 guidelines, we identify potential risks of violence, ensuring no stone is left unturned. This meticulous assessment forms the basis of our strategic advice in navigating the hostile termination process.

2. 2. Threat Management

If risk concerns persist after the hostile termination, we transition into threat management. We create detailed strategies and if necessary, develop tactical plans to mitigate any identified risks. We will assist in drafting emergency procedures and offer guidance on communication strategies for the potentially hostile termination. We equip you with the necessary tools to manage risks effectively and ensure the safety of your employees and continuity of business operations.

Beyond assessments and threat management, CIS provides assistance with the development of comprehensive policies, procedures, and hiring practices that alignment with best practices for preventing workplace violence.
