The almost universal employer response to increased workplace violence has been the implementation of so-called zero-tolerance policies.

An Equal Employment Opportunity officer with the Illinois Tollway has sued the agency, claiming she was suspended in retaliation for two reports she wrote alleging contracting improprieties by its former chief procurement officer.

Employees may be absent from work for extended periods of time because of illness or injury.
