How Can Supervisors Help?
If you are a supervisor and suspect that an employee may be in an abusive relationship, but the employee has not disclosed this to you, focus on any job performance changes and consult the Employee Assistance Program (EAP). If the employee has disclosed, work collaboratively with him/her, your internal contacts, such as Human Resources and or Department of Safety & Security (646-4000)
Be supportive! Don’t ignore the situation.
