Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
This is very troubling. Did she do anything to provoke this? She needs to contact her HR department first thing on Monday. Secondly she should consult with either a personal injury attorney or an employment law attorney about filing a claim against the individual and the company.

Good luck. Please rate the answer so that we get credit for assisting.
