Workplace violence has received an increasing amount of attention in the last five years. While it is difficult to conclude that it is actually escalating, the numerous studies do provide numbers that lead one to believe that it is a serious problem. Although agencies and corporations are beginning to develop workplace violence policies, there is no published research that documents the results of the implementation of such policies. The current research examines North Carolina state employees' familiarity with their new workplace violence policy and reporting procedures, how uniformally the policy is being utilized, victims' perceptions of their agencies' responses to their own violent incidents, and their generalized perceptions of the agencies' intent to keep the workplace safe.
