The Reis Law Firm Achieves Landmark Ruling On Workplace Violence Restraining Order Law

December 5th, 2011 by Sean Reis

The Reis Law Firm has used its expertise in workplace violence restraining orders to obtain a landmark ruling from the Fourth District Court of Appeal.  The ruling allows employers seeking workplace violence restraining orders to introduce all relevant evidence (even hearsay) to support its request.  This is a huge victory for employers, who previously had difficulty introducing sufficient evidence because witnesses were reluctant to testify.  Now, because of the ruling achieved by The Reis Law Firm, employers can introduce relevant hearsay evidence at the injunction hearing (such as second-hand testimony from a manager, or a prior written report) to obtain a workplace violence restraining order.  For full details, please read the ruling obtained by The Reis Law Firm:  http://caselaw.findlaw.com/ca-court-of-appeal/1587357.html
