Did you know......?

In the UK the economic cost of domestic abuse is £1.9 billion per year, and that a significant proportion of this is borne by employers?

  • 55% of abused women arrive late for work at least 5 days per month
  • 53% of women are absent from work for at least 3 days per month
  • 75% of domestic abuse victims are stalked in the workplace - from harrassing calls and texts to confrontation, assault and even homicide at work

DA - in the Workplace Poster WebDomestic abuse impacts the workplace through absenteeism, poor performance, tardiness, lost productivity, turnover and ancilliary recruiting and training costs.

Does your organisation have a domestic abuse policy in place?

Many forward thinking businesses do including Mid Counties Co-operative, The Body Shop, British Airways, BT and Diageo to name a few.

WMWA is focused on increasing employer awareness of domestic abuse and providing practical solutions and toolkits for them to take positive action.

It's YOUR job to know how to support your workforce around domestic abuse issues and keep them safe.
