One More Area Where Employers May Soon Have More Responsibility - Domestic Violence


Although it was intended more for political purposes than with actual hopes of passage this time, the Paul and Sheila Wellstone Domestic Violence Protection Act, discussed here, was just the tip of the iceberg of what is likely to be a major issue in the coming years. The Milwaukee Business Journal story illustrates how some employers are already ahead of the curve. I would be very surprised if we don't see increased calls for statutory intervention that will place more responsibility on employers for dealing with what is still a very "hidden" issue.
