A TRAINING FOR HUMAN RESOURCE PROFESSIONALS
This training has been APPROVED for 6 strategic recertification credit hours through the Human Resources Certification Institute (HRCI)
John P. Savas, SPHR
Domestic violence does not stay home when its victims go to work. It can follow them, resulting in violence in the workplace. With 1 out of every 4 American women reporting physical abuse by an intimate partner, it seems certain that most any company has employees struggling with domestic violence. All workplaces are vulnerable and should have policies and procedures to address these situations. Domestic violence spills into the workplace through threatening phone calls, absence because of injuries, lower productivity due to stress, or harassment of workers. When these signs are ignored, companies often face much more serious consequences; 1 women every 12 days is the victim of workplace homicide. Costs to businesses run in the billions.
