ABSTRACT

A growing concern on workplace violence has provoked the Western countries to promote diverse discussion concerning its concept and definition. The point in dispute is whether workplace violence should be restricted to only physical violence or include even verbal violence and psychological abuse. The so-called advanced countries consider workplace violence seriously and strive to develop policies and legislations to protect victims. However, the Korean government has yet paid little attention to workplace violence and made low effort for preventing it at the national level. This study first redefined the concept of workplace violence in criminal and normative views and then suggested a legislative improvement plan such as the establishment of aggravated punishment for persons who abuse their dominant position and commit workplace violence.
