Violence at the workplace may seem like it only happens to other people, but a violent incident can occur without warning at any company, no matter the size. You and other California business owners should understand the risks, as well as what to do to reduce the chances of a violent incident endangering your workers and affecting your legal interests.
Generally speaking, if you own property in California, you are the only one with an interest in the land and the only one with a right to use it. However, it is possible for someone who does not own a particular piece of property to gain a nonpossessory interest in it allowing the use of the property despite not being an owner. According to FindLaw, the legal term for this nonpossessory interest is an easement.
