Domestic violence an important workplace issue?
"Domestic violence is a workplace issue because what happens in the home or in one’s personal life follows a worker to the office. Furthermore, the workplace often represents either a safe place for the victim, or it’s a place where the abuser knows he or she can locate their victim. Someone suffering from physical abuse is likely to call in sick, come in late, or be distracted from their work, increasing the workplace’s health care costs and absenteeism as well as decreasing overall productivity. This is the impact that this supposed “private matter” has on the workplace."
