Financial Compensation for Teachers at Workplace Violence

English: Students working with a teacher at Al...

Teaching is seen as a noble profession. To nurture young minds, to impart knowledge, to watch boys and girls grow up into men and women is almost altruism personified. A teacher is the guide who leads the student through practice, to knowledge and finally to wisdom and sets of skills that will aid his life’s work. No job is without risks however and the recent phase of gun violence in school has teacher worried about their safety. If you are attacked and you are injured in your school you can claim compensation from the school authorities under the employment regulations. The school will be held responsible for the harm done to you in its premises. 

As per, you should concentrate following these issues that you can press your claim on:

Threats and Therapy

Students can be blossoming flowers, or they can be baby snakes on their way to be king cobras. A child is no longer an innocent, thanks to television and Internet. Many students especially in state schools are prone to violence, more so where the schools are in beat up and damaged sections of the city where crime prevails. Thee students are not afraid to threaten their teacher and to carry out that threat violently at the first opportunity. If you need therapy for such a threat and harrowing experience you can sue the school for compensation.


If a student physically injures you, for example by cutting you with a knife or shooting you in the leg or hitting you with a toe or bash you with a car while you are within the school premises you can sue for compensation because the school authorities are responsible for the behavior of the students. A suit may also be brought against the student for juvenile delinquency in which case the compensation will be paid by the parents.

Pay Back

The danger to the teacher is not limited to the action of the students. Some overzealous parents are constantly concerned about the welfare of their children, so much so that they do not hesitate to threaten the teacher with dire consequences if their child doesn’t attain good grades or performs like a champion in the sport field. In these cases an injury claim may be brought against the parent and the teacher will receive suitable compensation for mental and physical agony suffered including punitive damages to deter the aggressive behaviour of the parents.

Third Person

The school must guarantee safety and security to its employers. If a third person unrelated to students causes violence and injury to you while you are in the school the school board will have to compensate you for your loss, including charges for your medical treatment and therapy.


A school is like any other organization. If you are injured I the workplace the employer is liable to pay compensation and punitive damages if negligence is found on his part. Therefore though teaching may seem hazardous, it has safeguards to prevent abuse and misuse of the brave men and women who strive endlessly to build a better future of the country.

What to Do When Divorce Really Isn't an Option

Adults naturally come together, and make plans for living together, as a natural course of life. Similar to the basic instinct which has salmon in the Pacific Northwest of the United States swimming upstream, against the currents, in order to return to the place of their birth and spawn before they die, adults tend to come together as couples for reasons which are both social and biological. Often times, this works out well, as the couples mature as their relationship deepens over time. This can be as a result of the challenge and joys of raising children, or facing whatever challenges life hurtles at them over time. There are some times however, where relationships just don't work out. Couples may have completely different points of view on fundamental issues, or they may be financial stresses which cause major problems.

Sometimes, the problems are not so severe, and the relationship is not so frayed, that divorce is an absolute necessity. In these cases, a separation, possibly on a trial basis, might be the best solution. It will give both people an opportunity to sort through their feelings, and somewhat rewind the tape of the last few months or years, in an effort to find some common ground. If there are children involved, it is obviously quite challenging to have a break up that doesn't affect them. One parent is going to wind up staying with them most time, and the other parent will be reduced to coming to visit, and spending some time with them on a schedule that hopefully both parents agree on.

The Trend Is Rising

Not surprisingly perhaps, the majority of parents that remain with the children are the mothers. This is due to several reasons, the primary one being the fact that the father typically is working, and can't be home for the children. The second reason is a little more complex, but has to do with the fact that in many cases, the maternal instinct is just stronger. The trend towards separating appears to continue to gain momentum. According to some statistics, there are between 150,000 and 200,000 couples that separate in England every year. In 1970, it is estimated that there were about 60,000 lone fathers. 35 years later, that number had more than tripled. This is obviously a disturbing trend, as it implies that children don't get to spend as much time with their fathers as they would probably like, or should.

When the Decision Is Reached

Couples that decide that the best course of action at this point in their lives is to have a separation need to consider all of the details carefully. This not only involves how to manage time with the children, but also overall financial concerns, which range from simple bank account ownership, as well as any other assets that are considered joint property. Nobody should tackle these issues without professional advice. There are many organizations and firms that can help with this specific type of situation and one should definitely consult them before making any final decisions, or signing any documents.
