Ronald D. Brown served four years as an assistant U.S. attorney with the U.S. Department of Justice. After his tenure as a federal prosecutor, he spent the next decade in private law practice in Newark, during which he settled a $1 million medical malpractice suit, successfully argued a precedent-setting corporate case before the state’s highest court, and tried more than one hundred criminal jury trials, including a dozen homicides. He studied labor law and alternative dispute resolution at New York University Law School and also studied labor and employment law at Columbia Law School, from which he earned an LLM in 2004. He has taught criminal law and lectured extensively on issues of criminal law and labor and employment law. He has served as a labor law advisor to the U.S. army and as a labor and employee specialist for the U.S. Department of Agriculture in Washington, D.C.
Dying on the Job is the first book on workplace violence to focus exclusively on workplacemurder. While some perpetrators are certainly mentally impaired, many workplace murders are committed by people considered to be “normal.”Brown explores the various motives and drives that spark workplace murder, and answers hundreds of questions that are usually asked only after a workplace murder rampage has already occurred. Are men or women more likely to commit workplace homicide? How can people more easily spot those likely to commit workplace murder? What are some of the warning signs? How often is "suicide" used as workplace revenge? The answers to these questions and more are based on more than 350 actual cases of workplace murder, and the answers are often surprising. Brown also addresses different areas of prevention, counseling, and rehabilitation, and analyzes different approaches to gun control for both management and employees to make their job a safer place to work.
