Campaign to End Domestic Violence in the Workplace
Investigate Your Workplace’s Domestic Violence Policy
According to a national telephone survey, 21% of full-time employed adults were victims of domestic violence and 64% of them indicated their work performance was significantly impacted.
Employers and employees can play a supportive and positive role for co-workers who are experiencing domestic violence. Make safe resources available and advocate for formal guidelines and policies designed to protect employees and co-workers from domestic violence.
