Maine Study Says Abuse Can Follow Women to Work

Domestic violence often has an impact on victims where they work, a state-sponsored survey of more than 120 domestic violence victims in Maine suggests.  And that can lead to increased absenteeism, higher health costs and decreased productivity, says the survey and report released Friday by the Maine Department of Labor and Family Crisis Services. Gov. John Baldacci and state Labor Commissioner Laura Fortman urged employers to enact domestic-violence action plans.  Source. BostonGlobe, Boston.com.
