  Oracle Database Tips by Donald Burleson

Prohibit Firearms and Other Weapons

The employer should define a company policy  prohibiting weapons such as guns and knives from being brought onto company premises. These weapons increase the probability and extent of violence that could occur. The consequence of a violation should be a policy of zero-tolerance and require immediate termination of employment. The Workplace Weapons policy should be published to all employees in many ways such as in policy manuals, the company intranet, wall postings and so on.

Keep the Termination Meeting Brief

Dismissing an employee is not an easy or pleasant event for any IT manager. Allowing the termination meeting  to extend longer than is necessary will provide more time for potentially aggressive behavior to occur. There is no need to go over in extensive detail the events of the past. The manager should have all the facts documented for the firing at this point and the case fully justified. So the firing should be simple, straightforward, and brief; to limit the time the employee has to think of reasons why he or she should not be fired or should become overly aggravated.


An estimated one million workers, 18,000 per week, are victims of non-fatal workplace assaults each year.
