Intimate partner violence (IPV) is not traditionally regarded as a workplace concern. Recent research, however, demonstrates that IPV has significant effects on both employees and on organization-related outcomes. In this paper, we discuss current knowledge regarding the ways that IPV is manifested in the workplace, its prevalence at work, and its costs. Then, using a case study format, we trace the development of an IPV program in one company, Liz Claiborne, Inc. Finally, we discuss best practices for managers interested in addressing the IPV-related issues that may affect their workplaces.
