Session Description: Domestic violence and stalking are often considered outside the work environment and solely within the personal lives of employees. However, the past decade has seen expansive research and understanding on workplace productivity and safety as they relate to domestic violence and stalking behaviors. Incidents of domestic violence and stalking are more prolific in frequency, duration, and negative impact on personnel and work functioning than most employers assume. These problems impact the workplace in many ways, most significantly when threats of violence arise.
