What happens if the abuser violates the workplace violence restraining order?

If the workplace violence restraining order is violated on purpose (intentionally), the abuser can be found guilty of an invasion of privacy, which is a Class A misdemeanor. It may be a more serious crime, a Class D felony, if the person has a conviction for violating the order in the past.1
