Product Overview

On the basis of the Netherlands' Labour Conditions Act of March 1999, employers are obliged to take care of their employees' safety and health, and to pursue a policy aimed at creating the best possible labor conditions. The prevention of aggression towards employees falls under this obligation. Within the Netherlands' Judicial Penitentiary Service (DJI), aggression and violence among employees seem to occur twice as often as in other sectors. More than a quarter of Dutch employees in penitentiaries contend with intimidation by a colleague and/or executive staff member. Approximately 10% of the employees are confronted with unwanted sexual attentions. A small group of mainly male employees falls victim to physical violence. For this study, the model of Schaufeli and Peeters was used as a theoretical framework. The book shows a correlation between violence at work, job stress, posttraumatic stress disorders, and absenteeism.
