OBJECTIVES:: We examined threat management investigations conducted by a large multinational company. METHODS:: The company provided a database, removing any identifiers, of investigations by the corporate Threat Management Teams in 2009 and 2010. Rates were calculated using worker population data. RESULTS:: During the 2-year study period, the company investigated threat management cases at a rate of 13.9 per 10,000 employees per year. Cases that activated a Threat Management Team were more likely to lead to corrective action (odds ratio = 2.0; 95% confidence interval = 1.08 to 3.87) and referral to the Employee Assistance Program (odds ratio = 4.8; 95% confidence interval = 3.00 to 7.77), but were not related to likelihood of termination. CONCLUSION:: When the multidisciplinary teams were involved, cases were more likely to result in some type of action but were not more likely to lead to termination.
