Did you know......?

In the UK the economic cost of domestic abuse is £1.9 billion per year, and that a significant proportion of this is borne by employers?

  • 55% of abused women arrive late for work at least 5 days per month
  • 53% of women are absent from work for at least 3 days per month
  • 75% of domestic abuse victims are stalked in the workplace - from harrassing calls and texts to confrontation, assault and even homicide at work

DA - in the Workplace Poster WebDomestic abuse impacts the workplace through absenteeism, poor performance, tardiness, lost productivity, turnover and ancilliary recruiting and training costs.

Does your organisation have a domestic abuse policy in place?
