Employers Can Make a Difference
Domestic violence is no longer just a personal issue; it's a workplace issue. Studies show that domestic violence occurrences can impact the workplace through increased absenteeism, increased employee turnover, reduced productivity and excessive heath care costs. Additionally, many abusers attempt to stalk, harass, threaten and injure their victims at work.

Minimize Domestic Violence in the Workplace
Violence can erupt unexpectedly, even at work. Learn about the steps you can take to decrease the likelihood of a co-worker, customer, or partner of an employee becoming violent. It is important to remember that if at any time a person's behavior starts to escalate beyond your comfort zone, disengage from the situation.
