What do you do when you know or suspect a co-worker is being abused at home? The issue of a co-worker’s domestic violence is something that will affect all of us at some point in life. Pretending it isn’t there is definitely the wrong choice.
The Smoky Mountain Sentinel is running a series on this subject, and this a link to the first segment, which briefly covers signs of possible abuse in the life of a co-worker. These signs include, but may not be limited to:
- visible physical injuries that do not realistically match the explanations given
- stress-related illnesses such as migraines, digestive problems, backaches, fatigue, etc.
- eating disorders
- suicidal thoughts or attempts
- and more
