What does my employer need to prove to qualify for a temporary restraining order?

In order to qualify for a temporary restraining order, your employer must include an affidavit that shows these three things:

  1. you suffered unlawful violence or a credible threat of violence by the respondent;
  2. great harm will come to you if the injunction is not granted; and
  3. your employer has conducted a reasonable investigation into the underlying facts that are alleged in the petition.1
