Domestic violence is defined as a pattern of coercive tactics which can include physical, psychological, sexual, economic and emotional abuse perpetrated by one person against an adult intimate partner, with the goal of establishing and maintaining power and control over the victim.

So, all of us need to stay aware of current policy, and as revisions are made, new pages will be given to the staff to place in their manuals. Just notify the office manager whenever problems are encountered, and wherever you think improvements can be made.
Companies are urged to use this Model to develop their own specific policy to achieve these objectives.
Therefore, (Company name), to the fullest extent possible without violating any existing rules, regulations, statutory requirements, contractual obligations or collective bargaining agreements, designates and directs appropriate management, supervisory, and/or human resources staff to implement the following model policy.
There is no single law protecting the rights of employees while they are off work.
Instead, other areas of the law, such as discrimination, drug testing, and harassment laws, protect an employee's off-duty conduct. I recently tried to get promoted to a managerial position but I was denied because I would be supervising my husband.
