Employee with Violent Husband
A client has a newly hired manager who is going thru a divorce. Per the employee, who has spoken with a counselor, the husband has a 50% chance of doing harm to himself or the employee. EAP has become involved and recommends the woman go to a safe house. The employee does not have accumulated leave; however, the client is willing to pay her salary for at least one week to determine the extent of the risk. Anyone see any downside to putting the employee on administrative leave with pay. Anyone have any suggestions for how to deal with this over the long run?
