How long does an injunction against workplace harassment last?

An IAWH generally lasts for one year from the date your abuser is served, or receives a copy of the order.1 During that year, your abuser may ask the court for a hearing to try to change the order or get it canceled.2 Your employer may also ask the court to modify (change) the order or dismiss it.3
