DVIS Suggestions:

Employers are encouraged to keep a log of injuries, calls, and other instances related to such violence in the workplace or affecting a domestic violence victim’s ability to work. In some instances, an employer’s record has made the difference in a survivor achieving justice in court against an abusive person.

Talk to your Human Resources Department and your Security and/or Risk Management staff about this issue.

Contact DVIS to learn more about domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking and dating violence by calling 918.7HELP.ME (918.743.5763) or by e-mailing info@dvis.org.
