BLOOMINGTON, Ill., Sept. 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The Corporate Alliance to End Partner Violence (CAEPV) is pleased to present Domestic Violence and the Workplace: Three Case Studies in Practice. This webinar takes place Friday, September 23, 2011 from 2:00 - 3:30 PM ET.
Domestic violence does not stop at the door when employees go to work. The CAEPV HopeLine® from Verizon Webinar Series is designed to help increase employer awareness of domestic violence as a workplace issue and offer strategies for employers to recognize and respond to it.
A recent survey of CEOs found that most believe domestic violence to be a serious issue, yet 71% did not believe it is a problem in their company. The reality is that approximately 21% of full-time working adults report being a victim of domestic violence.
This webinar will examine current practices of employers addressing domestic violence as a workplace issue from three unique perspectives.
