Domestic Violence and the Workplace Training Course
Every day, domestic violence spills over into the workplace, threatening the safety of thousands of employees, both men and women. Training employees to recognize and respond to signs of domestic violence will enhance workplace safety and improve employee morale and productivity.
Domestic violence permeates the lives and compromises the safety of thousands of New Yorkers each day — with tragic, destructive and sometimes fatal results. It is a widespread community problem that extends beyond families into all areas of society, including the workplace.
In October 2008 the Governor of New York issued an Executive Order requiring all state agencies to formulate a Domestic Violence and the Workplace policy that, among other things, encourages and promotes domestic violence education and training for employees.
