Workplace Domestic Abuse Awareness


Everyone has the right to feel safe in their place of work, however for many this is not the case. Two women each week and one man each month are killed in England and Wales by a current or former partner. These people could be a part of your work force. 
 

Statistics from the 16 Days of Action Campaign show that:

  • 75% of people who endure domestic abuse are targeted at work

  • One-fifth of employed women take time off work because of domestic abuse

  • 2% lose their jobs as a direct result of abuse

  • 56% of those living with abuse are frequently late for work

  • 58% miss at least 3 days work per month due to abuse

  • 33% of all domestic violence homicides happen on workplace grounds

  • the potential loss of earnings per woman in the UK as a result of abuse having negative impacts on career progression, is estimated to be £5,800.
