How workplace violence prevention programs could have saved my aunt, and thousands of others
from The Huffington Post
According to the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics, women are much more likely than men to be victims of on-the-job intimate partner homicide. Spouses, boyfriends/girlfriends and ex-boyfriends/ex-girlfriends were responsible for the on-the-job deaths of 321 women and 38 men from 1997-2009. Many abusive partners target their victims at their places of employment because it's the easiest way to find them. They often harass or stalk them as a way of asserting control. Still, most people do not think of domestic violence as a workplace issue due to the misconception that it only occurs in the privacy of one's home.
