Domestic Violence Workplace Impact: How to Manage Employee Safety and Comply with Confidentiality & Leave Requirements - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn important HR administration and safety considerations to address when an employee is the victim—or alleged perpetrator—of spousal abuse.

Following Rob Porter’s recent resignation as the White House staff secretary amid allegations that he had abused two former ex-wives, the question of what happens when domestic violence creeps into the workplace has re-emerged. And, there’s a good possibility that spousal abuse could become a new area of focus in the #MeToo Movement.

While violent incidents are a primary concern, the impact of domestic violence in the workplace reaches far beyond human safety. Abused employees have higher absenteeism and lower productivity rates than non-abused employees. They also have over 40% higher health care costs and a greater chance of leaving the company or being fired because of what they are experiencing at home and at work.

Use this on-demand webinar when Mark Schickman, a partner with Freeland Cooper & Foreman LLP, will explain the types of domestic abuse and the common myths around them, as well as how domestic abuse can affect your workplace.

You’ll learn:

  • The prevalence, types, and forms of intimate partner abuse
  • Common myths about domestic violence and the complex dynamics of an abusive relationship
  • How domestic violence can affect your workplace and everyone in it
  • How to recognize, respond to, and refer domestic violence victims
  • Tools to help to keep victims and the workplace safe—and what you can and should legally do if you believe having someone at your worksite is creating a potential safety hazard to the work environment
  • The game plan to follow if your employee is the alleged victim of domestic abuse or the alleged harasser
  • Examples of states with domestic violence and stalking laws on the books—and the impact such laws have on employers’ obligations
  • Privacy and confidentiality considerations
  • Whether you can require an affected employee to take leave
  • How to respond if one of your employees is accused of beating his or her spouse or domestic partner
  • How to provide your employees with support when they need to attend counseling, court hearings, etc.
  • And more!
