Domestic Violence in the Workplace
A new initiative of The Shelter, “Domestic Violence in the Workplace” provides employers with resources to best respond to a staff person reaching out for assistance with a domestic violence related situation.
Consider these statistics:
- Seventy-four percent of battered women report being harassed by their abuser while at work.
- There are $4.1 billion a year costs in direct healthcare expenses.
- $900 million a year is lost related to loss in productivity.
- Three women are murdered at work by a current or former intimate partner each week.
These statistics validate what is happening more and more each day in our workplaces. This initiative provides a rich opportunity for businesses and organizations to gain valuable knowledge to enrich the quality of the workplace and actively address problems that affect business expenses and productivity.
