Safety Planning

  • Survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, or stalking may be affected by the violence at work. The abuser or perpetrator may call you, stalk you, make threats against you or your children, or attack you at work. These efforts may be affect your ability to work or jeopardize your job. You may be able to reduce the impact that violence has on your job through safety planning.
  • Domestic or sexual violence does not always stop when a woman leaves home in the morning to go to work. For example, the abuser, stalker, or perpetrator of a sexual assault may come to the victim’s job and harass or assault her at work or the victim and the perpetrator may work together. This guide explains the legal remedies you may have against your employer if you have been injured at work by an abuser or perpetrator of an assault or if you have been assaulted at work.
