Domestic violence extends into the workplace

A Door County organization is trying to get employers to realize that taking a stand against domestic violence can be beneficial to them as well as their workers. Domestic violence abusers often show up at the workplace to check up on their partner and threaten them. That can even extend to the customers they are serving in the workplace. Steve Vickman, Executive Director of Help of Door County, says employers can take a stand against domestic violence and that will not only help the emotional and mental well-being of their employees but will help them become more productive.

 

 

According to Vickman, there were 14,000 separate violent incidents at workplaces in the US in 2018. He added domestic violence cost businesses $8 billion last year due to lost work time and healthcare costs. Help of Door County is a non-profit organization that provides services and programs to victims of domestic abuse.
