A legislative proposal in Virginia would direct the Department of Labor and Industry to create a working group to study the issue of workplace violence across the state.

House Bill 1715, introduced Monday, would direct labor officials to convene a group to study the incidence and effects of workplace violence and suggest ways to mitigate it.

The measure would require the group to report its findings and recommendations to the chairmen of the state House Committee on Commerce and Energy and the Senate Committee on Commerce and Labor no later than Dec. 1, 2025.
