Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Workplace Violence Prevention Act. Expands the purpose of the Act to include protecting employees from unlawful violence and harassment at the workplace or because of an employee's employment duties or place of employment. Permits an employee to seek a workplace protection restraining order in certain circumstances, including, but not limited to, if: (i) the employee has suffered unlawful violence and the respondent has made a credible threat of violence to be carried out at the employee's workplace; and (ii) the employee believes that the respondent has made a credible threat of violence to be carried out at the employee's workplace or otherwise to be carried out against the same employee outside of the workplace because of the employee's employment duties or place of employment. Provides that an employee may not seek, and the court may not issue, a workplace protection restraining order if the employee otherwise qualifies for a protective order under the Illinois Domestic Violence Act of 1986, the Civil No Contact Order Act, or the Stalking No Contact Order Act. Makes changes to the definition of "credible threat of violence" and "petitioner". Makes other changes.
