A recent poll found that 13 percent of federal employees have received threats or harassment as part of their work at a federal agency within the last six months, Government Executive reports.
The Government Business Council conducted a flash poll June 28-29 of federal employees and also found that of the 212 employees who responded, 20 percent said they know a colleague who has been either threatened or harassed, according to the article, which notes that 40 percent said they believe they're more likely to receive threats today than in the past.
It also found that 54 percent of respondents reported that their agency leadership had issued guidance on how to deal with work-related threats, compared to only 37 percent who have not heard anything from management, according to the article.
