Domestic Violence in the Workplace

In our final podcast on domestic violence, Director of the Corporate Alliance Against Domestic Violence, Melissa Morebeck, focuses on domestic violence in the workplace. She begins by defining abuse and calling it a, ‘silent epidemic’, and goes on to describe it as, ‘perpetual, intentional, and escalatory in nature.’ Next she discusses the large percentage of people who will be abused at work, ‘75% of people who endure violence are targeted at work’. And provides advice and types of help workplaces can offer to those experiencing domestic abuse.
