Domestic violence does not mean the violence remains at home. It follows its victims wherever they go. Work is a predictable place where a victim is sure to be found.
The workplace, however, can also be a refuge and help a victim find his or her a way out. Because of this reality, employers are legally, morally, and fiscally obligated to address domestic violence in their workplaces.
By law employers must give time off, with some exceptions, to employees to deal with the issues surrounding domestic violence.
