Recently, an employee I supervise quit with no notice. She had been a disruptive employee to both the clients and other staff members. My question- is it within our legal rights to ban her from the property? Thank you for your time.

Yes, you certainly can forbid her from returning to the workplace. It’s your property, after all. Your question does not say what state you work in, but in many states, employers can go to court and get an order of protection against an ex-employee who has made threats. Good luck, and you’re welcome.
