--Roper Starch Worldwide Survey for Liz Claiborne, Inc. Domestic violence is the number one cause of injury to women in the United States. Domestic violence may occur at home but it also comes to work and affects the bottom line of every private and public sector organization. Women who are abused at home have increased health care costs, absenteeism, turnover, and stress in the workplace, as well as lower productivity. They and their co-workers are at risk for lowered employee morale, resulting in poorer quality products and customer service. Employees also can be at risk of real physical danger.
