|Author(s)||Michael D. Kelleher|
Profiling the Lethal Employee: Case Studies of Violence in the Workplace is a book by Michael D. Kelleher, published by Praeger Publishers, Wesport, CT, in 1997.
In this exploration of new possibilities for the reduction of workplace violence and occupational homicide within a variety of work environments, Kelleher examines the crimes of the lethal employee or ex-employee and develops a profile of characteristics and behaviors often associated with workplace violence or murder. This profile, in turn, can be used to recognize potential violence before it occurs, allowing employers to devise early and effective intervention strategies. The author develops the profile of the potentially lethal employee through behavioral science models and an analysis of case histories of incidents of occupational homicide.
