Event Description


Many human resources professionals have had basic training on how domestic violence impacts the workplace, but most do not realize the depth of the problem nor the most effective ways to deal with it. This training covers 10 specific points about employee victims and perpetrators, violence risk, victim perspective, best practice interventions, and the financial damage associated with domestic violence.


Human resources professionals are often charged with handling employee related domestic violence cases, which can be both challenging and dangerous. This training seeks to educate and prepare HR staff to assess and handle domestic violence cases by sharing crucial information on where victims are coming from, what they’re really facing, and how employers can sensitively and effectively support them, in order to keep the entire workplace safer overall. Statistically speaking, every large company has domestic violence in their midst, whether they realize it or not. More than half of women (and many men) have experienced physical, sexual, or severe emotional abuse during their lifetime and most of these victims are employed, as are their abusers. When both show up to their jobs, the abuse and harassment often follow, emerging as domestic violence “spillover” in the workplace. 


  • Recognizing and addressing batterer employees
  • Domestic violence spillover in the workplace  
  • Performance and attrition issues caused by domestic violence
  • 7 ways domestic violence impacts businesses
  • Cost calculation resources
  • Liability issues
  • Victim disclosure fears 
  • How to encourage victim disclosure
  • How to respond sensitively and effectively to employed victims
  • Creating a menu of remedies and accommodations
  • Complications and risks for victims leaving an abuser
  • Understanding the path to “escape velocity”


  • Participants will explore the issue of domestic violence and learn how it impacts the workplace
  • Participants will gain insight into the topic of domestic violence “spillover” and discuss the legal and financial problems it can create
  • Participants will improve their skills in  recognizing and responding to domestic violence victims in the workplace
  • Participants will examine and develop new strategies for assessing and managing employee related domestic violence cases


Human resources professionals at all levels. Management, employee relations, legal, and security professionals
