Take it one step further! Ask your employer to adopt a workplace policy that supports victims of domestic abuse.

Why adopt a domestic abuse workplace policy?
One of the most critical factors in helping victims of domestic abuse find their way to a safer, healthier life is a consistent and reliable support system. This includes friends, family, neighbors, coworkers and…their employers.

Employers don’t always realize the power they have to support their employees who are being terrorized at home. Although we often think of domestic abuse as being, well, domestic–the reality is that the problem doesn’t remain at home when a victim goes to work. The abuse (and, at times, the abuser) follows that person to the workplace and significantly impacts their safety, productivity, attendance, and general ability to perform well. Research shows that 96% of domestic abuse victims experience problems related to their abuse at their workplace, and 74% are harassed by their abuser while at work.
