Stalking is a specific form of criminal offence and a recognised social problem. According to the Crime Survey for England & Wales, approximately 20% of females and 10% of males receive unwanted stalking behaviours over their lifetime, and this figure continues to increase annually. The role of the workplace in stalking cases is crucial - many stalkers find their victims through workplaces and are able to elicit information about their victims from the very place that has a duty of care to protect their privacy and safety. The routine and predictability of workplaces unwittingly assists stalkers in accessing their victims. Many stalkers also show up at their victims workplaces, often with fatal consequences, and knowing how to deal with stalkers is a safety issue.
