Domestic Violence as a Workplace ConcernCauses of domestic violence in the workplace

Soroptimist International of the Americas, working to improve the lives of women and girls in local communities and throughout the world, examines the issue of domestic violence in the workplace in this white paper. When a woman is being abused by her intimate partner, she does not leave the abuse when she leaves her home. Abusers often harass their victims at work via telephone or e-mail, or they may come into the workplace to harass their victims and co-workers. This situation can give rise to untold financial hardships for the employer and create a dangerous workplace for the victim and her co-workers. Companies should be proactive and have policies in place for dealing with domestic violence in the workplace, as well as create awareness about domestic abuse as a whole, and teach employees how to recognize signs and reach out to victims.
