Stalking is a form of interpersonal victimization that can have irrevocable effects on the lives of victims but is frequently misunderstood and minimized. This article presents a case study of a woman who was stalked in the workplace by a 39-year-old male colleague, and offers recommendations for occupational health clinicians charged of medical surveillance of workers (so-called “Competent Physicians”) who have to cope with stalking at the workplace. The prevalence of stalking provides many opportunities for Competent Physicians to intervene, but first they must recognize and understand the problem. The study underlines the inadequacy of the current legal and medical responses to the needs of these victims.
