How to handle employee’s domestic abuse

by on
in Employee Benefits Program,Human Resources

Q. There is an employee in our company who repeatedly comes in to work with injuries obviously suffered at the hand of her spouse. As an employer, do we have an obligation to alert authorities about at-home physical abuse of an employee?

A. No, you are not legally obligated to alert authorities. If you choose to do so, be careful not to jump to conclusions. You may want to give the employee information about your employee assistance program, if you have one.
