Not a private matter

Domestic violence, or intimate partner violence, has a profound impact on the workplace. Many victims are harassed and stalked while at work, and domestic violence is a leading cause of workplace homicide, according to the CDC. Each year, domestic violence costs employers millions in lost productivity. Domestic violence is not a private matter and it doesn’t just take place behind closed doors. It’s a personal issue, it’s a workplace issue and it’s a serious issue.
