On average, four to five women are murdered by their husbands or boyfriends each day in the United States and women experience two million injuries from intimate partner violence each year.  Domestic violence can impact our commitment to providing a respectful workplace.  Domestic violence can follow victims to work, spilling over into the workplace when a victim is harassed, receives threatening phone calls, is absent because of injuries or is less productive due to extreme stress.  Domestic violence is a serious, recognizable and preventable problem, similar to other workplace health and safety issues that affect the climate of the workplace.
