Safe Workplace

Did you know...?

  • 74% of working battered women are harassed by their abusive partners on the job; and of them:
  • 54% miss at least 18 days of work each year
  • 56% are late for work on at least 60 days each year
  • 28% leave work early on at least 60 days each year
  • 20% lose their jobs altogether

Battered women consistently identify the lack of financial resources as a primary obstacle to separating from their abusive partners. For working women, battering can further weaken their financial security by compromising their ability to perform and keep their jobs.
