Partner violence affects employers whether they realize it or not. In the workplace, employees who are experiencing partner violence at home are distracted, stressed, and may be fearing for their lives.
Employees who are perpetrators of partner violence are employed as well. They often report taking time from their work duties to harass their partners and use company resources as tools for stalking and harassment.
Employers are well advised to take specific steps to address partner violence to ensure the increased safety of the workplace and improve the well-being and productivity of employees.
