This seminar will explore the impact that domestic violence and sexual assault have in the workplace. The seminar will approach these topics from a Human Resource perspective. Employees’ home lives can affect their performance at work, particularly with an issue like domestic and sexual violence. Many abusers attempt to stalk, harass, threaten or injure victims at work. For the victim, actions like these can present barriers to getting and keeping a job and often result in reduced productivity and lost wages. For the employer and co-workers, it can result in increased medical costs, reduced productivity, absenteeism and heightened risks of violence to others.
However, by choosing to proactively address this issue in the workplace, employers can enhance workplace safety, increase employee productivity and moral, decrease absenteeism and turnover, create a powerful, positive impact in the community, and implement effective prevention and intervention strategies.
