4. Another Assualt

Another case of physical assault that could be made against Michael Scott occurs in season 7 episode 1 “Nepotism,” when Michael hires a young man to work in the office as an assistant. The other employees do not realize the teenage boy is actually Michael’s nephew.

However, his nephew exhibits immature and menacing behavior, prompting the other employees to beg Michael to fire him. When he repeatedly refuses, they eventually realize the truth and become upset. In a cringe-worthy attempt at finding a happy medium, Michael takes his nephew outside the conference room and strikes the teenager’s behind repeatedly in front of everyone.
