What it Means to Businesses

Effects of Domestic Violence on Companies
If you think that domestic violence only affects the employee, think again. Companies can suffer massive losses as a result of domestic violence. It’s estimated that more than 1.75 million workdays are lost each year to domestic violence and that victims lose nearly 8 million days of paid work a year—more than 32,000 full-time jobs combined. That loss of productivity comes with a huge price tag. Missed workdays and decreased productivity, along with increased health and safety costs, results in a loss of $8.3 billion annually to companies nationwide.

Under state law, employers have certain responsibilities that they need to uphold for employees who may be the victims of domestic violence. Some of these provisions include:

  • Job protection for participation in criminal proceedings
  • Employer-initiated injunctions and restraining orders
  • Right to leave work to obtain an order of protection
  • Obligation to protect confidentiality work. 


Effects on Victims’ Jobs

Domestic violence not only puts a person’s overall health and well-being at risk, but it can also jeopardize their job as well. In fact, 25-50 percent of victims of abuse from a partner have lost their job due to domestic violence. This is because 35-56 percent of victims of domestic violence are harassed at work by their spouses or significant others.


Employer Response to Domestic Violence

Across the country and around the world, employers—large and small, state and local, government and private sector—have begun to develop effective policies and protocols to address domestic violence in the workplace.  

You can make a difference in your workplace and in the lives of employees who are facing abuse!  Employers need to consider doing more as part of an effective employee-relations program to protect their vulnerable workers. 

Acceptance is contingent on a willingness to work toward adopting policies and procedures that further the mission of eradicating all forms of violence from the workplace.  E3inspire works with individual companies as well as partner with Employee Assistance Programs (EAP).
