Ninety-six percent of employees who were victims of domestic violence reported some type of workplace problem as a direct result of their abuse. More than 60% were often late, 54% missed at least three full days of work per month, work performance suffered for 70% of the victims, 60% were reprimanded for diminished performance, and 30% were fired.
