Why Domestic Violence Is Your Business

by Employee ‎10-26-2011 10:12 AM - edited ‎10-27-2011 06:49 PM

domestic_violence_statistic2_133px.jpgFor National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, I've asked Kim Wells, the executive director of the Corporate Alliance to End Partner Violence, to answer some questions on why domestic violence prevention matters in the workplace. If you are an employer, please consider implementing a policy to provide help to employees that may be a victim of domestic violence. If you are employed by a company, please share this Q&A with your human resources contact or office manager. We can all do something to end domestic violence.
