Murder in the American Workplace

Murder in the American Workplace
BY JEFF TOLVIN
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

Denied tenure and certain she would lose her job, Harvard-trained neurobiologist Amy Bishop shocked the nation when, in 2010, she killed three colleagues and wounded three others with a nine-millimeter semiautomatic handgun at a University of Alabama biology faculty meeting in Huntsville.

Ronald D. Brown, who has practiced both criminal and labor and employment law, was more intrigued than most with the circumstances and details surrounding those killings. He had been studying workplace murders – acutely aware of the paucity of literature on the subject – and Bishop motivated him into writing mode.

The result: Dying on the Job (Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, 2013), said to be the first book to focus exclusively on workplace murder, based on Brown’s study of more than 350 workplace murders. In it, he analyzes what drives individuals to take such horrific action, the warning signs and preventive security measures companies should take.
